Our visit with Ian McMahon

One of the tremendous benefits of being ‘Children in Residence’ is the opportunity it provides for interacting with deCordova’s exhibiting artists. This week we were fortunate to have an intimate meet and greet with artist Ian McMahon while he installed his gigantic piece, Tether. We joined children from other studios as Ian explained his installation process and answered our many questions in a manner that we could all understand. Be sure to ask your child about the 24 ‘marshmallows’ soon to be residing in the Linde Gallery.

Ian made quite an impression on the children and when asked they responded,
“I thought he was friendly.” VIOLET
“I think the artist was nice.” CASE
