Joining the North Adams annual Fall Foliage Parade, Cauleen Smith’s procession features a local marching band playing a composition based on the iconic notes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Wizard of Oz, along with a color guard waving flags designed by the artist and casting a trail of vibrant billowing smoke. With music by Jeff Parker and choreography by Anna Martine Whitehead, this activation is both a celebration and commemoration of the people who did not successfully rise above the violence and dehumanization of the modern industrial age.
This program is made possible by the MAP Fund, supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support is provided by The Coby Foundation.
