Stowe’s Annual Sculpture Festival Turns 25
In Vermont Art Guide #2, Theresa Sinclair reports on Stowe’s annual sculpture festival. “Each July the sun dappled streets of Stowe come alive with art,” writes Sinclair. “Like mushrooms after a summer storm, creativity blooms throughout the town as the Helen Day Art Center presents ‘Exposed’, their annual outdoor exhibit. Poetry pops up on storefront windows on Main Street while sculptures emerge in locations around the town and along the bike path, inviting visitors to explore everything there is to see.”
It’s quirky and thought provoking pieces like these that make “Exposed” such a success at bringing art into the community to inspire a broader audience. Art has the power to touch and to change us in profound ways if we allow it.
Whether on foot or by bike, visitors can meander along the exhibit at their own pace or join a scheduled walking tour. Scan the QR codes along the way with your smartphone for a self guided audio tour. A full color catalog and detailed maps are also available from the Helen Day Art Center. Exposed will be on display through October 15, 2016 at locations throughout downtown Stowe. To find out more, visit www.helenday.com.
