Earth Press Project: Witnessing Change by Nancy Winship Milliken

September 1 through November 1, 2019

Minute Man National Historical Park


Earth Press Project: Witness is a public-generated sculpture event by Nancy Winship Milliken Studio, in collaboration with Minute Man National Historical Park, The Umbrella Arts & Environment Program, Reflex Letterpress and you, the public.

Participants are invited to respond to the following call by submitting one-word responses in an online form. Words will be randomly selected and imprinted into an 11x14” earthen block that will join hundreds of other responses in a sculpture displayed at the Minute Man National Historical Park September 1 - November 1 2019. This project is a joint effort to pilot a new Artist-in-Residence program at The Minuteman National Historic Park.


In 1775, the people of the Massachusetts Bay Colony witnessed a revolution that reverberated around the world. The struggle that began in these now quiet fields ushered in lasting change for generations to come.

As in the time of the American Revolution, there is today a world of possibilities before us. It all begins with a thought and a word. 

What change would you like to witness today as inspired by or in response to the events that took place on this historical landscape?

(Guidelines for submission: no profanity, one submission per participant, no proper names)
