“…an awakening of place. Like moving from the arid setting of a Kansas farm to the enlightened spectacle of Oz, the yellow brick road begins at the native bluestone sculpture of local artist, Tyler Borchert, and culminates in the tropics of Leon Smith’s “Calypso”, warm with color and rhythmic feel with stops of wonderment and delight along the way. This is a small but powerful journey through the transformed atmosphere of a rural village.”—RG – “These TIMES” (NY)
Sculpture Expo 2015, Red Hook’s Annual public art exhibition of large-scale outdoor sculpture, is now open. Some guided tours are available (see schedule of events below). Or you can download your own walking map (below).
SE15 is a community arts project located in the Village of Red Hook, NY. The exhibit covers an approximate one half-mile radius from the center of the village, and includes tours, talks, workshops, and related events over a period of six months. All events are community based and open to the general public, attracting both local residents and visitors to the Hudson Valley throughout the summer and fall.
The sculptures will remain on display through November 13, 2015.
