Union Park Press is proud to be a partner of the deCordova Sculpture Park & Museum’s first Family SculptureFest! On Sunday, September 19th, the beautiful museum and grounds–only 20mins from Boston–will be filled with an array of family-friendly activities in celebration of contemporary art.
The event–both indoors and out–includes Sculpture Park tours, scavenger hunts, art-making, art sale, performances, and community-related activities. Plus, Union Park Press will be there to represent our collection of local books; Meg Muckenhoupt will be there to sign Boston’s Gardens & Green Spaces, and Chris Klein will be there to sign Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands and The Die-Hard Sports Fan’s Guide to Boston; and all families that stop by our booth will be entered into our raffle for the day. What better place to support all things local, than on this special day-long event?!
