Eight Great Things To Do This Weekend – 5/14/20
Building off of last week’s Eight Great Things To Do This Weekend, this installment features seminars, classes, concerts and more, all of which are accessible via streaming. Plus, read all about Tupelo Music Hall’s brand new drive-in theater!
ONE: Join John Macone for a virtual hike of two lesser-visited sections of Maudslay State Park — two places to hike where you will likely encounter very few people. Explore some interesting history of the Merrimack River waterfront park, and see some sights that few visitors get to see.
The hike will be happening today at 1 p.m. on Facebook.com.
TWO: If you enjoy visual art, but you don’t fancy creating yourself, mixed-media artist Cassie Doyon is hosting her International Public Art Process Webinar tomorrow from 7 to 9 p.m. Doyon will demonstrate the construction of a mosaic sculpture and discuss her experience as a student learning about the public art process in Guatemala.
