The non-juried art show will run in the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts Gallery from April 13 - May 5, with an Artist Reception on Sunday, April 21, 5-8 pm.

Live performance proposals are welcome and performers will have the opportunity to present their work at the Artists Reception on April 21.

Founded in 1990, Musketaquid Arts & Environment, the environmental arts wing of Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts, is a place-based program whose mission is to provide opportunities to create and experience art and to explore, learn about, celebrate and care for the local environment. The name Musketaquid honors the wisdom of Concord, Massachusetts’s first people who named the area according to its nature, "the place where the waters flows through the grasses.” Every year, Musketaquid presents an Earth Day Celebration, this year to be held on Saturday, April 27, from 10 am-2 pm.
