Guest Newsletter for Sunday, November 2
Here is the Hawthorne Guest Messenger for Sunday, November 2, 2014.
On view September 27, 2014 to September 20, 2015
This exhibition explores the often surprising ways in which contemporary artists use trees as an inspiration as well as a medium for their art. Made with bark, wood, roots, seedpods, leaves and biosignals, over 30 varied works and a selection of hands-on interactive opportunities ask us to consider our relationship with trees as a vital natural force. From Diego Stocco's music compositions made with trees and leaves to Joseph Wheelwright's figurative root sculptures, this exhibition celebrates the varied ways in which people are connected to and creatively inspired by trees.
Periods of rain and snow in the morning will turn to rain in the afternoon. Windy. High 42F. Winds NNW at 25 to 35 mph. Chance of rain 80%. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.

This Day in History
On this day in 1777, the USS Ranger, with a crew of 140 men under the command of John Paul Jones, leaves Portsmouth, New Hampshire, for the naval port at Brest, France, where it will stop before heading toward the Irish Sea to begin raids on British warships. This was the first mission of its kind during the Revolutionary War.
I hope to see you here!
