Salem State University professor Ken Reker and Salem State University Art + Design students have fabricated an interactive public art work that will be on display around the perimeter of Salem’s Old Town Hall, 32 Derby Square, through Wednesday August 31. Titled "What Matters Most?" the installation is a playable, nine-hole miniature golf course;each hole imparts a question for players to consider. The public art work is available to view and play each day from 4pm to 8pm.

The art work was created in Art 340 (Sculpture / Mixed Media) during the 2016 Summer I Institute of the Division of Graduate and Continuing Education at Salem State University. Student designers and fabricators are Yiming Sun, Kaitlin Martin, Erin Shalvey, Peter Pizzi, Jessica Ferrairo, Liza Provencher and Richard Saraf.
