TRIP IS NOW FULL!
A wait list is available.
Great news! The deCordova Sculpture Garden and Museum (now a Trustees of Reservation [TOR] property) in Lincoln is now re-opened to accommodate groups on a limited basis. Our Miata trip will take place as originally scheduled on Sunday, July 11, 2021.
MEETING will be from the Minute Man National Historical Park Battle Road Visitor’s Center Parking Lot in Lincoln/Lexington with a MEETING TIME OF 10:00 a.m. with a DEPATURE TIME OF 10:30AM sharp. We will take a one-and-a-half-hour drive through scenic roads in Lincoln and Weston, making a stop at Twisted Café for sandwich pickup or bathroom break OR YOU CAN PACK YOUR OWN LUNCH.
- We will have secured spaces for a 12-car group to arrive at about noon time. We will be at the Museum for two hours until 2 PM. That allocates adequate time for a picnic lunch and time to do self-guided audio tours of both the Sculpture Gardens and the indoor Museum.
At 2PM, we will depart the Museum for a one-hour scenic drive to our final destination for ice cream.
Limit: twelve cars (I will hold two spaces for new members).

What’s on View in the Museum? (April 9-September 12, 2021)
Sonya Clark: Monumental Cloth, The Flag We Should Know, In the spring of 1865, a seemingly unremarkable dishcloth played a crucial role in ending the Civil War as the South’s flag of surrender at Appomattox. In this exhibition, textile and social practice artist Sonya Clark focuses specifically on this Confederate Flag of Truce, exploring the legacy of symbols and challenging the power of propaganda, erasures, and omissions.
Sonya Clark: Heavenly Bound, Clark’s most recent work responds to the perilous northward journey of formerly enslaved people on the Underground Railroad, centering on African American experiences of survival and emancipation. This body of recent work will be accompanied by selections from deCordova’s permanent collection, addressing national symbols, race, and collective memory.
What We Do in the Shadows, Highlighting deCordova’s holdings of art associated with postwar countercultures in the United States, this exhibition looks across the Museum’s legacy of collecting works that push against the status quo, uplift disempowered people, and disseminate messages of peace and equality.
