10th Anniversary Celebration of The Contemporary Sculpture Path
October 24, 2010
The Forest Hills Educational Trust opened the Contemporary Sculpture Path in 2001, establishing Boston’s most ambitious collection of temporary and permanent public art. On Sunday, October 24, the Trust will throw a 10th anniversary celebration from 1:30 to 5 pm. Refreshments and a family art activity will be at 1:30. There will be a flute concert in the pine forest at 3 pm, and a tour with some of the participating artists will take place at 3:30 pm. The rain date is October 31st. The Contemporary Sculpture Path is an evolving exhibition that weaves through the grand Victorian landscape of Forest Hills Cemetery. For 10 years, the Trust has invited artists to create site-specific work exploring themes such as nature, memory, family, nature, identity, and the mysteries of the spirit world. Many of the works on the Path were originally commissioned for summer-long juried exhibitions with themes – Spirits in the Trees, the 4 Elements, ReVisited and Dwelling. The most successful – and durable – of the temporary pieces stayed on exhibit. The Path currently consists of 27 works of art, primarily by Boston-area artists, composed from diverse media including bronze, wood, copper, cast cement, stainless steel mesh.
