Artists are invited to submit proposals of site-specific artwork for Old Frog Pond Farm’s annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit, Around the Pond and through the Woods. As we celebrate our 13th season, we have asked Nick Capasso, Executive Directive of the Fitchburg Art Museum, to be our juror. Exhibit dates are May 19 - October 14, 2019. We are extending our season to offer time for our ‘farm’ poets to view the work and write poems inspired by their selected work.
