During a ten-month process, the selected artist guides and collaborates with children 6 -12 to create a final exhibition on view during the summer after its completion. The completed project is exhibited in the Edward H. Linde Gallery in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art at the MFA.

Call to Artists The R.W. Kern Center, Hampshire College, Amherst, is seeking artists interested in showcasing their work at an exhibition/performance, “The Illusion of Away: what really happens to our waste.” For most of us, our waste is hidden. Trash is taken away to an unseen landfill, waste water is processed in facilities far away from us, air pollutants are discharged in neighborhoods far removed from the public eye; this invisibility prevents us from conceptualizing our impact. Most of us have no sense of where our waste goes, how much waste we produce, or the legacy of our waste after we are gone. Learn more.
Deadline: February 3rd 2020
