"Once There Was A House" , a site-specific installation that my colleague Katha Seidman and I are in the process of designing and building, will open at the South Shore Art Center in Cohasett, MA in September 2016. We have created a Facebook page (Click here) to chart our progress as we develop this installation.

 

"Once There Was A House"  is based on the Villa of Mysteries in Pompeii, a house where time has stopped, millennia have passed, and as if through a wormhole, we look on recognizing much, wondering at more. We invite you to view the page regularly to track our progress. We hope you will "like" and "follow" the page, and especially leave a comment.
