Art & the Landscape

Art and the Landscape

Trustees landscapes, rich in cultural, historical and natural context, provide platforms for inspiration and meaning. Art & the Landscape is a multi-year initiative to share compelling contemporary art in the context of a public landscape with Trustees members and visitors.

With the help of independent curator Pedro Alonzo, we aim to surprise, delight, and intrigue visitors with unique new works at some of our most iconic properties. Beginning in May of 2018, Trustees presents our third Art & the Landscape installation, by internationally renowned contemporary artist Alicja Kwade, at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate in Ipswich. Previously, we featured commissioned works designed for The Old Manse in Concord and World’s End in Hingham, by renowned artists Sam Durant and Jeppe Hein, respectively. Each creation is site-specific, designed to help tell the story of these treasured places.
