Event Information

Join artist Matthew Jensen as he walks through his exhibition, The Wonder Under, with visitors and discusses the many artifacts found and photographed as part of the project. The installation consists of over 550 hand-cut photographs of objects found throughout the park, shoreline, and construction zones. The objects, all found in plain sight, reveal how the past and present are intertwined in this landscape. Historical artifacts like 19th century porcelain and redware, large pottery fragments, a half-cent from 1850, and flint and obsidian spear points, mix with contemporary castoffs of plastic, foam, metal and glass. Many of the objects are familiar, while some are strange and unidentifiable. The Wonder Under is currently on view at 99 Plymouth.
