Hendrickson – Questions for a Stony Landscape

January 14, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Please note, this event is sold out  

Ted Hendrickson, Associate Professor of Art, Connecticut College

The Connecticut landscape holds the subtle evidence of great swaths of time. Hendrickson photographs stonework marking the man-altered landscape, capturing its potential evidence as work and ritual, as sculpture and talisman. Barely hidden on the fringe of encroaching suburbs, these propped boulders, cairns, ancient chambers, and aged walls represent the activities of local people of the past, however shrouded in mystery. Who built them? When? And Why?
