SUMMER SCULPTURE SHOWCASE 2020
We hope you’re staying safe, healthy, and connected during these difficult times. We know that everyone’s life has been disrupted – and there is so much uncertainty of what is to come – but we also understand the importance of staying connected and engaged as we learn to adapt. We invite you to continue to enjoy Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds. Both nature and art have proven therapeutic benefits, and the combination of the two can play a vital role in improving our physical and mental health. Now is a great time to immerse yourself in the beauty the grounds have to offer.
Our annual exhibition, Summer Sculpture Showcase, has featured the selected sculptural works of over 80 acclaimed artists, hailing tremendous success, and providing artists with a unique opportunity to showcase their sculpture in a majestic environment specifically tailored to accentuating and nurturing the creative arts.
With over 100 sculptures woven throughout different gardens and courtyards, this en plein air art experience allows visitors to enjoy incredible large-scale contemporary sculpture on 4.5 beautifully landscaped acres. On the property sits the home and fabrication studio of sculptor Gilbert Boro and although his residence is not open to the public, Boro welcomes visitors to picnic, explore the Grounds and take in the beautiful sights.
Our fabrication Studio and indoor facilities are currently closed to the public for the safety and well-being of our staff, visitors & artist.
We ask that you continue to practice safe social distancing measures and we hope you enjoy your visit!
