Four Southborough residents have put together an interactive art exhibit on display in a neighboring town. “Winged Escape” is on exhibit outdoors at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts this week, through Sunday.

Winged Escape
July 20 – 26
Artist Chelsea Bradway, Patrick Steele, Max, and Miley Francis bring this interactive outdoor art experience to the HCA.

This project is a collaboration among four artists, ranging in age from 10 to 56 years. “Winged Escape” seeks to bring visitors to screens painted with the wings of birds and angels, and pose before them. The artists encourage visitors to interact, become part of the art, and, if they wish, take photos of themselves before the wings to keep or to share. They may engage with the spirit of donning wings, imagine flying in the meadow or visualize an escape from confinement, societal roles, their own history. Rising up, imagining a growth away from or towards another physical form or seed of consciousness.

The exhibit can be seen and interacted with all week at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts. We encourage you to take socially distant pictures outside amongst the wings on the grounds. Snap a photo and mark it with the hashtag #arttakeswing. We want to see your photos!

The outdoor display is on the HCA grounds at 98 Hayden Rowe St, Hopkinton, MA 01748.

Bradway shared a few photos of the displays in use:
