A Sculpture Trail...
halfway between Storm King and Grounds for Sculpture
lies Laurelwood Arboretum
A Sculpture Trail, part of the continuing Art at the Arboretum series, is a multiyear project to benefit Laurelwood Arboretum. EXPLORE … installations are underway!
The goal for A Sculpture Trail is to promote art — unique and engaging sculptures created by prominent artists from around the country — that complements the landscape, foliage, and water features of the Laurelwood Arboretum.
It is also a fundraising opportunity. ALL pieces have been curated by Scott A. Broadfoot and are available for sale through an exclusive agreement with “Broadfoot & Broadfoot, A Collection of Fine Art,” Boonton, NJ. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated back to the Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) and will be applied to the installation of a capital improvement project.
We are well along our way towards delivering on our plan to install 15 remarkable works from a diverse group of prominent artists. New installations are being installed throughout the Spring so if you haven’t walked through the park recently, take advantage of the gorgeous weather and do so.
Educational programs for both school age children and adults are in development in addition to docent-guided and audio tours.
Installed May 2021
Mark your calendar for the weekend of June 5th-6th for a guided walk-through of the works installed and a sneak preview of what’s to come. Scaled-down, one-of-a-kind sculptures by participating artists will be available for sale — with a piece to be raffled off.
We’ll also be officially kicking off our Ad Journal Sales and Sponsorship Opportunities ahead of our Grand Opening, September 18th ! Help us keep the momentum going by contributing to this exciting project.
