Natalie Lederer will lead a tour of the Norton Museum especially for UUs on March 29 at 10:30am. Please RSVP -- call 790-5981. We will explore abstract art, beginning with this month's Spotlight selection. It features renowned contemporary artist Spencer Finch. His work is about light, color, and the passage of time. He is interested in depicting a world that is experienced differently by each of us -- our reactions to nature and to popular culture. Finch's abstract, yet personal work is on permanent display at the entrance to the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City. Called Trying to Remember the Color of the Sky on That Morning, it depicts 2,983 sheets of paper painted with varying shades of blue, representing each person who perished that day. We shall view and discuss his take on an Apple Tree and on the Wizard of Oz movie, as well as related works in the permanent collection.
