Go Out Doors

Go Out Doors
A Bruce Freeman Rail Trail Public Art Project
July 1 - November 30, 2020

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, 
for going out, I found, was really going in.” ― John Muir 

What happens if you open the door and step outside? What happens if the opportunity to engage presents itself? What might we discover if, on foot or wheel, we find ourselves on a path through the woods – hidden from the roads we travel daily? What happens if we leave our electronics behind and find that steps from the front door a sensory world awaits? What happens if we walk and bike daily to and from school and work? Or just for fun? What might we feel? What might change? 

We invite you to visit our Go Out Doors exhibition of doors painted by nine artists and installed on the West Concord section of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail between Route 2 and Powder Mill Road. Inspired by the En Plein Air door installation on NYC’s High Line, we hope you discover inspiration, whimsy, irony, reflection, connection, curiosity, spirituality, and/or joy.
