The meetings take place in down town New Bedford (within the walking distance of the Star Store building). Please use campus shuttle (the “loop”) to be at the designated venues at 3:pm. Traveling between the main campus (Dartmouth) and the Star Store arts campus (downtown New Bedford) is easy when you ride the Loop bus.

Group Meeting with Artist Leslie MacKlin
This sculpture is McKlin’s own interpretation of one of these fences. It is made entirely out of ceramic. The aim here is objectifying the economic and cultural boundaries within the city of New Bedford, though the conversation could be cast nationally. These fences are an everyday reminder of the wealth of the cities past and the economic boundaries between the cheap labor that built them, a labor force now depleted in the city – which is made evident in the disrepair of these fences and even more so by the cheap attempts to repair them. Socially these moments where the barriers have been broken speak to the necessity of leveling the economic inequality within the community. The fact that this is made of ceramic speaks to the fragility of the status quo in which the future of these post industrial economies is uncertain. Human condition beyond social critique.
