The Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture and the Arlington Historical Society have collaborated to bring contemporary art by the accomplished Boston sculptor Leslie Wilcox to the grounds of the historic Jason Russell House. Wilcox has selected six of her distinctive steel mesh sculptural “garments” – developed over the last 20 years – to create an evocative installation for the Jason Russell House entitled Arboreal Attire.

Inspired by fashions of the 19th and early 20th centuries, Wilcox embodies the people who may have passed through the grounds of this historic family residence, built over 270 years ago in the 1740s. At the same time, she seeks to reveal the idiosyncratic character of six individual trees. Her sculpture aims to captures a hybrid presence, part human and part force of nature. Memories of the past and the qualities of historic fashion unite with the shapes and spirits of the trees themselves to bring a diverse cast of characters to a forested space.

Wilcox’s sculptures look delicate, even ephemeral. In reality her gowns and jackets are tailored from tough, durable stainless steel mesh. Her Arlington installation required weeks of demanding work, hoisting pieces of translucent metal up into each tree, wrapping and draping the sculptural garments around massive trunks, and carefully stapling seams into place, ensuring that the trees are not harmed in the process.

Artfully painted doors are cropping up along Arlington's bikeway, in a preview of a new collaborative regional public art exhibition, Go Out Doors - Neighbors. Inspired in turn by NYC's En Plein Air exhibition on the High Line, Go Out Doors – Neighbors promotes healthful outdoor activity, reconnection with nature, and travel by bike and foot.

An expansion of The Umbrella Art Center's "Go Out Doors" installation of artist-painted doors in West Concord's Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, Go Out Doors – Neighbors creates an extended regional public art tour with installations connecting three towns, three Visitor Centers, three cultural districts and three bikeways -- currently Arlington, Lexington and Concord -- with many more to come in 2021  throughout the Greater Boston and Metrowest region.

Currently installed in three Arlington locations are: "We Are Stardust" by the 2020 McLellan Award-winning artist Adria Arch at the Uncle Sam Visitor Center; "Silver Lining," a collaborative painting near Summer Street Field by two ArtLinks Arlington members, Laurie Bogdan and Jason Rudokas; and "Hope," also by Laurie Bogdan, off the path by Bow Street, behind the Old Schwamb Mill.

The local portion of this project is supported by Arlington Tourism and Economic Development, the Arlington Cultural District, the Mass Cultural Council, and the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture (ArtsArlington.org).

More installations are planned here in Arlington and in additional towns over the next several months.
