I am extremely pleased to become a lending artist of DeCordova Museum’s Corporate Loan Program. DeCordova Museum was the first museum I learned about in childhood. My family went there often when I was growing up. Then in my twenties I worked from the figure for several years in night classes at the museum’s school. The main building is high on a wooded hill overlooking pristine Sandy Pond, a near neighbor of Walden Pond. A former private mansion, the house is designed with ivy covered round brick towers surrounding the original main entrance. The location of the entrance has changed several times since then. After delivering my artwork I took a walk around and remembered many years of encountering this magical place full of strange delights. I’m very proud to have my artwork included in DeCordova’s mission to place art where people work. Thank you to the terrific folks who run the program!
