This from Jean Mineo –

Have you driven on Hospital Road this week and wondered what those “pink things” are?

20150516 Thistle Invite Full page

Please save the date May 16 from 2 – 4 pm to learn more and drop in for the artist’s reception for Thistle, a temporary art installation at the former State Hospital. The goal is to celebrate the purchase, invite people to explore this resource as we imagine a future use, and encourage participation in the Master Planning process.



Approximately 75 Medfield residents including our amazing Girl Scouts, Blake Middle School art students, and friends at the Council on Aging and beyond, assembled the 50 or so Thistles now on site. Maps will be provided for each volunteer to find their Thistle within the installation.


Above (and attached if it’s too small to read) is the invitation. The reception is free and open to the public, a walking tour of the property kicks off at 2:30. Rain date is Sunday, May 17 and a notice will be posted on in the event of postponement. Hope to see you there!


Medfield TV created a terrific video of the Thistle making process here:
