Field notes from Matt Noyes, Grounds Manager:
I hope you’ll visit Stone Hill to enjoy the view AND check out the El Anatsui exhibition. The contemplative galleries provide an undistracted environment where you can experience Anatsui’s transcendant sculptures. Strips of Earth’s Skin, especially, reminds me of the colorful, complex landscape surrounding Stone Hill Center.
