UNBOUND: Sculpture in the Field Installs Begin

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
Free
Opens June 26, 2014 through September, 2015

summer2014-unbound-sculpture-install-parson (6)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.

Unbound: Sculpture in the Field Installation Begins

 

The Arvada Center Gallery staff has been hard at work preparing for this summer’s outdoor exhibition
Unbound: Sculpture in the Field in partnership with the Museum of Outdoor Arts.

Beginning a year and a half ago, the staff of both institutions met to select the artists for exhibition. Now that artists are finalized and works selected, the exhibition will feature twenty seven sculptures by fifteen Colorado artists of various size and media. Utilizing the open field just south of the Arvada Center, art will be placed throughout a meandering path inviting patrons near and far to explore the wonderful world of sculpture.

For the last few days - Colorado Hardscapes, Inc. has been pouring the concrete forms where the sculptures will be installed.

With over 50,000 cars a day driving on Wadsworth Blvd. , this an exhibition that cannot be missed!

We hope to see you for the opening reception Thursday, June 26, 2014  from 6 to 9 p.m. Mark your calendars!

 This is exhibition is scheduled to be installed through September, 2015.
