The Art of Observation
The Art of Observation: A Retrospective of David Campbell’s WorkCommunity Curator: Debra OlinNovember 2020 – February 2021*Curated by Community Curator, Debra Olin, The Art of Observation will be a major retrospective of the work of David Campbell, one of Somerville’s most beloved artists. This show will explore Campbell’s long-standing fascination with the streets and buildings of Somerville itself. Programming for this exciting exhibition will also introduce a number of other artists for whom Somerville has been a primary inspiration. We are engaged in ongoing discussions on how to safely re-open the Museum to our members and visitors. All related events will be virtual. Stay tuned for more information.Related Programming: Somerville Streets Trivia: Weekly Online EventDraw What You Know: Virtual ExhibitThis program has evolved into a collaboration with Emily Alcott’s 6th grade art class at the East Somerville Community School.

Home is Where the Art is | November 2020This program invites Jessica Howard’s Somerville High School’s portfolio class to draw what is visually interesting or meaningful to them in their immediate environment.
