Option 1: Large Scale Exterior Installations with Deb Aldo
This presentation will focus on contemporary artists who have done large outdoor works in a variety of climates. From always sunny southern California to New England's harsh winter weather. Many but not all of these are not just large scale but are public installations. Most of the images will be the final installation but when possible the construction process will be shown to give a sense of the amount of work that goes into the installations before the final result. In closing one of the projects is community based and we will discuss the possibility of creating a community project for the NEMS members.

Option 2: Arts Integration Residency Process with Ann Thompson
Join Ann for a brief introduction to Arts Integration. Ann will go over how using mosaic and recycled materials can create an affordable and meaningful school residency and description of her most recent residency with Saco Middle School combining art and science and how they pivoted to complete the project remotely due to Covid 19.
