Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Inquiry welcomes back DINA DEITSCH, Assistant Curator of the DECORDOVA SCULPTURE PARK AND MUSUEM in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Dina is here to talk about the 2010 DECORDOVA BIENNIAL, the museum’s new showcase of some of the most interesting and challenging contemporary artists of New England.
