About Art on the Trails, 2017
The 2017 Art on the Trails at Beals Preserve is an outdoor exhibition that invites artists to create site specific sculptures and installations that engage visitors and draw attention and interest in this special 55-acre tract of land, owned and managed by the Southborough Open Land Foundation in Southborough, Massachusetts. It is planned for the Summer 0f 2017.

There will be a juried show themed Finding Solace in the Woods, as well as a component open to anyone in the community who wants to participate. 

Plein Air Poetry
In addition to the exhibition, we plan a Plein Air Poetry program, which will invite poets to visit the installations along the trail and write poems in response.

There are two events planned. The first is a traveling art walk/ opening reception where the participating artists can share their story about the work they created. Poets interested in the Plein Air Poetry component will come along to be inspired by this work. 

The second event, at the end of the Summer, will focus on the poets. Another art walk and reception, this will be their opportunity to read the work they have written as the visitors walk together along the trails of the Preserve.
We are seeking funding for the following:

Juror Fee $250 (former Fitchburg Art Museum Curator Mary Tinti)

Weatherproof aluminum signs for major works in the exhibition. Approximately 20 x $18 each, $360 

Maps and map holders (2 ) $100 total
