Earth Press Project: Witness is a public generated sculpture event by Nancy Winship Milliken Studio in collaboration with Minute Man National Historical Park , The Umbrella Community Arts Center and you, the public. The completed project will be on view September 1 through November 1, 2019 at the Minute Man National Historical Park.

In 1775, the people of the Massachusetts Bay Colony witnessed a revolution that reverberated around the world. The struggle that began in these now quiet fields ushered in lasting change for generations to come.

As in the time of the American Revolution, there is today a world of possibilities before us. It all begins with a thought and a word. 

What change would you like to witness today as inspired by or in response to the events that took place on this historical landscape? 

As an Artist in Residence at Minute Man National Historical Park the studio is bringing historical events into contemporary terms. The resulting installation is a collaboration with studio interns from around the nation, Diane Klement, Michael Weiss, Emily Kiernan, Meryl Braconnier, Brooke van Buiten and Studio Manager Eleanor Reagan. Creative professional partners include Reflex Letterpress, Building Heritage and Terra Collaborative. Many thanks to Dirt Tech in Vermont for their donation of clay and sand.
