Trip: deCordova Museum to see the exhibit: Visionary New England
March 17 @ 10:00 am
The bus departs at 10:00 am for a trip to the deCordova Museum to see the exhibit: Visionary New England. Visionary, mystical, and utopian practices are crucial to New England’s culture, history, and character. From the experimental agrarian communities founded in the 1840s, such as Brook Farm and Fruitlands, to the intersections of spiritualism and experimental psychology at the turn of the 20th century, New England has long developed alternative ways of nurturing community, personal growth, and societal reform. Related artists and writers frequently united their intimate connection to nature with a search for access to alternate dimensions or higher powers. Approximate return: 1:00 pm. Fee: $20 for transportation and admission. Sign up at the Front Desk under “Trips.” Please indicate if you have membership to the museum. Museum members will be responsible for arranging for their own tickets.
