Guest Newsletter for Thursday, November 6
Here is the Hawthorne Guest Messenger for Thursday, November 6, 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.
Showers early, becoming a steady rain later in the day. High around 50F. Winds SE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 100%

This Day in History
Abraham Lincoln is elected the 16th president of the United States over a deeply divided Democratic Party, becoming the first Republican to win the presidency. Lincoln received only 40 percent of the popular vote but handily defeated the three other candidates: Southern Democrat John C. Breckinridge, Constitutional Union candidate John Bell, and Northern Democrat Stephen Douglas, a U.S. senator for Illinois.
I hope to see you here!
