What Matters Most? An Interactive Public Art Work

May 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

WHAT MATTERS MOST? is a 6-green mini-putt golf course based upon issues of the climate crisis. This installation was created for Salem State University’s Earth Days 2022, CLIMATE CRISIS: ACTIONS FOR A JUST; LIVABLE WORLD, April 11 through April 15.

The project was conceived by Salem State University Professor Ken Reker and designed; fabricated by Art + Design students during the Spring 2022 FORM; DESIGN classes. Each green examines a myriad of climate concerns including sea-level rise, the continued degradation of the worlds’ environment, overconsumption, the dead-zones of the ocean garbage patches, art worlds’ love affair with NFT’s (non-fungible tokens); the impact of burgeoning populations.

This public art installation will relocate to downtown Salem and be installed around Old Town Hall at 32 Derby Street from April 27 through May 15, 2022. Hours of play are Wednesday & Thursday from 1:00 – 6:00 PM, Friday & Saturday from 1:00 – 8:00 PM and Sunday from 12:00 – 5:00 PM. Putters & balls are available from CultureHouse in Salem Old Town Hall.
