Special Event Details

New Horizon

Dates: 6/6/2019 - 7/28/2019

In July 2019 Doug Aitken will present NEW HORIZON, a multifaceted art event that challenges the notion of art in the 21st-century. The project is composed of a series of live events across the state of Massachusetts, centered around a stunning reflective hot air balloon and gondola. At each stop the mirror balloon touches down and becomes a happening. It is both an artwork and an event where ideas, conversation, music and art are shared. The journey creates a continuous, flowing event, encountering unique individuals and providing an insight into the future of our culture. Happenings will take place at a selection of iconic Trustees properties, starting at Long Point Wildlife Refuge in Martha’s Vineyard on July 12, followed by stops in the greater Boston area, including the Crane Estate in Ipswich and ending on July 28, in the Berkshires. Each unique property will have a variety of volunteer roles and shifts. This is a fantastic opportunity to become part of a once in a lifetime happening.
