"For the third year, sculptors of Brookline-based STUDIOS WITHOUT WALLS return to exhibit temporary outdoor installation and sculpture along the banks of the Muddy River in Frederick Law Olmsted’s historic Emerald Necklace- Riverway Park. Sixteen artists present outdoor works in dialogue with their environment, community, and the world of art. The artists work in a variety of nontraditional materials---concrete, ceramic, Styrofoam, plastic sheeting, snow-fencing, metal, wire, recycled fibers, bone and feathers. Their forms are equally diverse, from elephants in the bush to translucent rocks; to poetic puzzles, oversized flowers and fungal invasions in the semi-natural parkland of Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace. Covering a broad range of subjects, the works subvert natural forms, decry environmental spoliation, invoke fertility and decay, up-end expectations of gravity and support, explode aesthetic theories, and provoke imaginative reverie."
I'll post pictures of my installation after it's installed on Thursday.
