Spotlight Tour: Andrea Carlson's Last Out

Andrea Carlson - Last Out

About Spotlight Tour: Andrea Carlson's Last Out

This new series takes a deep dive on sculptures in deCordova’s 30-acre Sculpture Park with curators and preparators on our staff. Each 30 minute conversation is designed to be an insider’s take on a favorite sculpture in the Park from someone who has a deep connection with the work. Ask your burning questions, get the inside scoop, and learn about familiar sculptures in a new way in this informal series.

This program will focus on Andrea Carlson’s Last Out with Associate Curator of Native American Art Tess Lukey.

For this PLATFORM Billboard commission, Carlson is creating a new painting, titled Last Out 2023, that will be reproduced at an oversized scale and installed outdoors in the Park.

Capacity is limited. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance to guarantee a spot.

Plan to arrive on campus at least 15 minutes before the tour begins, as it may take some time to check-in. Please meet Tess on the front steps to the Museum. Registered participants will receive an email if the tour is cancelled.

Your ticket includes admission to the park. Feel free to explore the grounds before or after the program. You’re welcome to picnic in the Park. Bring your own picnic or pick up a bite to eat at the Twisted Tree Café, and stop by The Store for a gift or souvenir.
