Musketaquid Arts & Environment
About the Program

“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”  -- Pablo Picasso

Our Arts & Environment Program promotes a discovery of the arts, a passion for place and nature, and environmental responsibility. We sponsor an integrated program of community events including our signature Musketaquid Earth Day, Solstice Celebrations, adult and children's classes, and public art installations. 

All ages and abilities are welcome: individuals and families, environmental, school and community groups.

Did you know? The name Musketaquid honors the wisdom of Concord's first people who described this place according to its nature, "the place where the waters flow through the grasses." Just as Concord's rivers extend beyond their bends, we seek ways to reach across traditional boundaries between art and nature. This sense of place is integral to our program and we connect to the past and to the present through observation, reflections, and creation.
