About Spotlight Tour: Arlene Shechet's Tall Feather

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 Arlene Shechet’s Tall Feather with Associate Curator of Native American Art Tess Lukey.

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. Registered participants will receive an email if the tour is cancelled. Please meet Tess at the stairs in front of the Museum.

Your ticket includes admission. 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.
