Proceeds from exhibit sales to benefit Museum and Neponset Watershed Association
Boston, MA-Opening on November 30, 2019, in conjunction with the Annual Lower Mills Holiday Stroll, a calendar’s worth of photographs by noted artist David J. Stokle, celebrating the history and beauty of the Neponset River and its newly opened pathway extension will be on display and sale at the Forbes House Museum at 215 Adams St, in Milton. Proceeds from the sale of the framed works will go to benefit the Neponset River Watershed Association, as well as the Forbes House Museum.
Homage to the Neponset, captures the vibrant life and extraordinary beauty of one of Greater Boston’s most scenic and fastest recovering rivers. In fact, on September 26, the Riverway was recognized by the American Planning Association as one of the “six great public spaces of 2019.” Stokle’s photographs highlight the river’s many vistas including the recently opened Harvest pedestrian bridge, which links the greenway all the way from Mattapan through Milton, up to the bridge on Granite Ave near the end of the estuary in Dorchester Bay.
More than a catalog of the river’s splendor, Stokle’s images evoke a pedestrian’s experience along the greenway through all seasons of the year, in all weather conditions and in varying moods from the tranquil solitude of a lone walker braving a winter night, to an impressionistic symphony of warm Fall colors that surround a Blue Heron standing over his momentary home on a rock protruding from the water.
Guests may also view the exhibit during the regular museum tour hours: Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays at 11:00 am or 2:00 pm till February 22, 2020.
