Simple Gifts: Contemporary Art Installation at the Oldest House

Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist Zenas Hutcheson returns to Nantucket for one of the island’s first exterior art installations. Installing his polychromatic Nantucket landscape photographs outside of the Jethro Coffin House (c. 1686) as a means of activating the historic site and reimagining exhibitions during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The artist asks the question: amidst pestilence and environmental crisis, how will Nantucket’s human history and landscape lead us into tomorrow?

Hutchenson’s work will be on display for one day only. An artist talk begins at 4 pm, followed by a reception.
