The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art -- MassMOCA -- is in the old mill town of North Adams, Massachusetts, two hours north of Hartford. It occupies several abandoned factory buildings that have been renovated as galleries for large-scale modern art. MassMOCA is outstanding!
This is Democracy, a 2012 installation by Gisele Amantea, a wall flocking that recreates on a large scale a work by the American architect Louis Sullivan. Democracy is in a recent MassMOCA exhibition devoted to Canadian art.
The art won't be everyone's favorites, but the place is just amazing.
