Sculpture in the Field is making progress!
Today, Chuck Parson starts installing his piece for the UNBOUND: Sculpture in the Field Summer 2014 Gallery Outdoor Exhibition. Scroll down to experience what his installation SOUNDS like !
Arvada Center South Field
Opens June 26, 2014 through September, 2015
The impetus for this summer’s series of exhibitions began by re-imagining the 17-acre open space just south of the Arvada Center to create a compelling and engaging outdoor sculpture exhibition. In partnering with the Museum of Outdoor Arts, who specializes in the placement of site-specific sculpture in Colorado, 27 sculptures were chosen of various sizes and media by 15 highly acclaimed Colorado artists. This creative vision will ultimately transform and evolve to create a one-of-a-kind space in the western region by devoting a dedicated area to showcase modern and contemporary sculptures. In placing art, it changes the landscape of Arvada and brings the programming of the Arvada Center galleries inside, out.
