The Hidden Museum, 2018

With this installation, visitors are challenged to locate “hidden” works of art the Susquehanna Art Museum. You may not realize something is a work of art until you read the label. Even then, is it?

The Hidden Museum is a place to practice observation and interpretation. The artists hope it also gives visitors a chance to observe, seek, wonder, negotiate, uncover, and realize their own capacity for sensing significance. Visitors are invited to find their own work of art in the city of Harrisburg. Hold up your label, take a picture, and share it using hashtag #hiddenmuseumHBG.

Fear No Lit is an independent, unaffiliated literary organization working to create unique literary experiences both online and in person.
