“Walden: Four Views,” gallery talk by Abelardo Morell, June 22, 2017

“Walden: Four Views,” gallery talk by Abelardo Morell, June 22, 2017, Concord Museum. The Concord Museum celebrates the bicentennial of the birth of Henry David Thoreau, one of America’s most thought-provoking writers and thinkers, with a deeply personal exhibition by photographer Abelardo Morell. Walden: Four Views, by Abelardo Morell will be on exhibit at the Concord Museum from February 10 through August 20, 2017.

Over 150 years after Henry Thoreau’s publication of Walden, Abelardo Morell offers a new look at the landscape that formed Thoreau. Inspired by Thoreau’s journals and his seminal work Walden, Morell brings his creative imagination to Concord and takes us on an unanticipated journey through large-scale panoramic works of Walden Pond. With his intuitive, often-experimental approach to picture-making, Morell envisions a sort of Eden – perhaps the garden Thoreau found in this evocative place.

At this special event, Abelardo Morell will provide a gallery talk for a limited audience, followed by a reception in the Museum’s Brooke Hall. Members $40; Non-members $55. Space is extremely limited; Priority registration for Concord Museum members available now. Reserve online or by phone at 978-369-9763 ext. 216.
