Artist in Action: Timothy Ellis Cole

Friday at Heritage Museums & Gardens

As part of this season’s outdoor art exhibition, Human | Nature, visitors have the opportunity to watch artist Timothy Ellis Cole install his sculpture, Sea Flea, which includes a refurbished vintage hydroplane, and to interact with him during this fascinating process.

Timothy Ellis Cole creates murals, paintings and illustrations that evoke the environment's impact on our aesthetic sensibilities and experience. The forms, colors, and materials in his work reflect his personal journey—from his childhood love of skate culture to his current life as a dad and artist living on Cape Cod. Recent exhibitions include the Cultural Center of Cape Cod (South Yarmouth, MA), Seaport Art Walk (New Bedford, MA), and the Jonathan Bourne Historical Center (Bourne, MA). He lives and works in Monument Beach, Massachusetts.

Human I Nature: Heritage Museums & Gardens invited five artists to install outdoor sculptures throughout the museum grounds and gardens. Each of the artists will install their works in a different month of the summer season (May – September). See monumental public art, meet the artists, watch them work, and participate in hands-on artmaking workshops. With this group of artists, you get a little bit of everything: metal, wood, fiber, sound, mixed media, painting and more. Each artwork explores how humans and nature coexist, interact, and overlap.
