The Bumpkin Island Art Encampment, a weekend-long interactive art exhibition, will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday (August 1-2, 2009). Sharon Haggins Dunn, Alice Apley, and yours truly are among the artists participating in the event this year. If you live in the Boston area, consider visiting the island this weekend, you can take a ferry from Boston or Hingham to get there. An exotic island adventure awaits you in the Boston Harbor Islands! A recent Boston Globe story mentions the encampment. For more information (including the history of the island, a list of projects, and transportation options including a direct boat to Bumpkin from Boston on Sunday) visit, www.berwickinstitute.org/bri/bumpkinisland.
