CELEBRATE: Peripatopia Turns Heads

Thompson Gallery

Outside Thompson Gallery, at The Cambridge School of Weston

After surveying the work within the Thompson Gallery on Friday, I passed by Peripatopia to take a few photos of its setup. As I watched, a group of students passed by and one so casually ran his hand along the component closest to the walk. As he did so, I heard him distinctly whisper, “I’ve been wanting to touch that”… I was so pleased he had. Interacting with the work is encouraged while it is being hosted on campus, but I suspect the clean platform and elegant podium display may be presenting the opposite idea. Only further observation will tell!
