Artists bring more outdoor sculptures to Artpark

Niagara Gazette — As a follow up to its 40th anniversary celebration of 16 temporary installations in 2013, Artpark will continue its visual arts renaissance and bring more artwork into the park this summer. Six large-scale, semi-permanent sculptures will be constructed in the Historic Artpark Woods and along the red brick road.

The installations are part of Artpark’s effort to turn the trail in the woods into a sculpture trail with more installations to follow in the coming years.

“We want to invite patrons to explore Artpark’s wonderful woods trails and appreciate the beauty of nature as well as the aesthetic of site-specific installation,” said Tanis Winslow, Artpark’s director of visual arts & family programs. “This effort coincides with the new free chamber music concerts that will be debuting on the old storytelling stage in the woods in July and August. The idea being to get people walking, discovering and enjoying the historic trails through the woods.”

The installations are free to view and spectators are encouraged while the artists are working in the park. For more info and photos, visit www.artpark.net.
