  2. “Images of heaving ocean swells shot from a swimmer’s point of view, and of a man with a metal detector searching for treasure on a beach, suggest a kind of quest, a search for a Holy Grail … It is a pathetic Grail, this sad rock, which makes it all the more poignant to contemplate. It is, perhaps, a metaphor for our beleaguered spiritual condition.”
—The New York Times on Trisha Baga: Plymouth Rock 2, on view through Sunday.

  6. The saddest story of an object, where it becomes a symbol, and then is moved from place to place through overly elaborate processes, broken in half and brought back together … Right now they’ve built a gazebo around it to protect it from the rain. A rock protected from the rain. It’s my favorite sculpture story.

    —  Artist Trisha Baga on the story of Plymouth Rock, which loosely inspired her work Plymouth Rock 2, opening tomorrow.
