If you haven’t explored the Art on the Trails exhibit at Beals Preserve, you’re running out of time. Fortunately, there’s a special guided walk to close out this summer’s exhibit. As is their tradition, organizers are holding a Poetry Walk.

A call for poems inspired by exhibits on the trail went out this spring. During the September 26th closing ceremony for the “Mending” themed exhibit, selected poets will read their poems at the art installations that inspired them.

Here is the announcement:

Art on Trails Closing flyerWe are excited to invite you to join us on Sunday, September 26th from 3-5 PM for the Closing Celebration and Poetry Reading for the 5th Annual Art on the Trails in Southborough.

Our event will begin at the Main Entrance of Beals Preserve (Map Here) and will follow the trail through the woods to stop and hear poetry at each of the installations along the way. . .

If you would like to purchase a chapbook, you can preorder and pick it up at the event. . .

This event is outdoors. While MA state guidelines do not require masks at outdoor events, we recommend that attendees take whatever precautions for their own health requirements.
