The Decordova Museum in Lincoln, MA is currently exhibiting an installation show called Trainscape: Installation Art for Model Railroads. Each of the twelve individual exhibits in the 3500-square foot gallery is connected by a small, working, travelling model railroad. The fourteen artists that participated have created unique worlds that are changed, influenced and connected by the moving presence of the trains. The Decordova describes that in Plush, the installation pictured above by Stuart Schecter, “the pleasant innocence of youth appears in the stuffed animals…while the penned-in toys and their menacing actions suggest the darker side of trains.”
The exhibit continues through January 13th, 2008. See the Decordova Museum website to watch a movie of the train travelling through the installations.
