I want to introduce you all to a fantastic public art installation project started by my creative neighbors Denise and Steve. The project is located on a fence which hangs outside their Natick art studio, The Artists at 3 Adams behind The Five Crows gift shop. Here is an excerpt from the Locks and Keys blog which explains the project in more detail and chronicles all of the locks and keys attached to the fence!
"Locks and Keys Project (LAKP) is an interactive public art installation - a continual work in progress. A 12 foot fence covered with locks, keys, notes and art that illustrate memories, thoughts, hopes and dreams.
Do you hold the key to someone’s heart? Want to unlock a secret? Have a grudge to share? A love to reveal?
Help us create an interactive public art installation using those thoughts. As a guest “artist” either bring your own special lock or key that holds a personal memory, or pick one out from our free supply. Think of a memory, a wish, a regret, or anything that is important to you. With that thought in mind, write a message directly on the lock or key, or on key tags we have on site, then attach the lock onto the fence just outside our studio."
