River Project: Connecticut River

River Project: Connecticut River

Dear travelers, friends and neighbors of the Connecticut River, including those of you from Putney: I am creating an art installation at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center and I am asking for your help.

To me, rivers are the earth's veins, each having its own character, imprinted by its natural surroundings and those who occupy it. The art installation will consist of a collection of words and sediment earth and rock. I am hoping for impressions that give one a sense of the river's life.
