Art show along a river bend takes a page from 19th-century artist Thomas Cole

In a cove on the Connecticut River in Northampton, Massachusetts, art viewers paddled through "Swamp Show," an exhibit of art inspired by nature. Along with life vests, participants were given a prompt to write or draw while out on the oxbow. (Jill Kaufman/NEPM)

Along the Connecticut River in Northampton, Massachusetts, works of art were hung from trees, floated on water or partially submerged.

The recent show was inspired by a landscape oil painting of a bend in the river by 19th-century artist Thomas Cole.

Jill Kaufman of New England Public Media has the story.
