NORTHBOROUGH – A new public art exhibition is coming to Ellsworth McAfee Park in Northborough, with a grand opening set for April 10.

Go Out Doors – Northborough features a series of doors painted by area artists. The exhibition’s themes focus on visions of wellness and the outdoors, while also seeking to highlight what organizers describe as Northborough’s “unique sense of self and place.”

“Go Out Doors – Northborough asks, how can we, as supporters of the arts, draw more
people outside to reconnect with nature and our town public spaces,” a press release announcing the grand opening noted.

The display draws inspiration from a similar exhibition at New York City’s High Line park and expands on an existing installation on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail that was coordinated by the Umbrella Arts Center.

This effort was sponsored by the Northborough Cultural Council as part of the Love Northborough Public Art Campaign, presenting artists with upcycled doors and a $150 stipend to help create their final products.

The April 10 event starts at 12 p.m. and will run until 1 p.m.

Guests will have the opportunity to meet the door artists and see their displays.

The doors will then remain on display through the end of May.
