Community Organizations Gather to Kick Off The Big
On September 21, 2011, the Attleboro Land Trust joined other community organizations to help
promote this year's 1ABC
Reading Program in a creative event hosted by the
Museum. The book for this
year is Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the theme
of the evening was
The Other Side of the Fence, a reference to the famous scene in
which Tom cleverly motivates others to help him with his fence-painting
chore. On display were fence sections creatively designed by local
artists on behalf of local organizations.

Artist Sarah Mott honored the Attleboro Land Trust with her creative
talents, using the five fence slats she was allotted to make a signpost
that pointed to five of our properties. Each slat was decorated with
objects harvested from the natural world, such as acorns and feathers,
and arranged in a unique pattern.

The exhibit closed on September 24, but many of the pieces will be on
display at other locations throughout the city.
