Carol Prusa’s drawings are silverpoint, graphite, and titanium white with acrylic binder on acrylic hemispheres and fiber optics. Got that? Her domed drawings are like ethereal veils or bell jars, finesse in pursuit of the fantastic and fanciful.

“Drawn to Detail,” a complex, compelling and cutting edge exhibition, is one of the final shows organized by director of curatorial affairs Rachel Rosenfield Lafo in collaboration with Koch Curatorial Fellows Kate Dempsey and Nina Bozicnik. Lafo is one of New England’s most adventurous and insightful curators. Over the course of the last 25 years, she has managed to put a once sleepy little art park and museum in the country club suburbs outside of Boston on the art world map as a nexus of the new and the next.

Three months after the DeCordova hired a new director, however, Lafo tendered her resignation, effective November 1, explaining that the new director and board “seek a different creative direction for the museum.” To which I can only say, “Good lord, why?” We can only hope the DeCordova board knows what they’re doing and what they are losing in Rachel Rosenfield Lafo.

DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, 51 Sandy Point Rd., Lincoln, MA. 781-259-8355.
