Community Organizations Gather to Kick Off The Big Read

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 Attleboro Arts 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.
