The Perry County Heritage Tourism Art Committee hosts the Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit for a 2nd year in the City of Perryville!
Flowers aren’t the only thing you’ll find springing up around town this April!
You may notice some new sights in Perryville, beginning April 29, as the Perryville Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit rotates the 2021 sculptures with its new arrivals. Installation of the 5 new sculptures begins the morning of Friday, April 29. In addition, there will be a celebration of the installation, that evening, at the Sculpture Artist Reception.
The Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit began in 2021 and is juried by the Perry County Heritage Tourism Art Committee. The exhibition aims to create places of interaction and uniqueness. It features stunning works of art created by artists from across North America.
The 2022 artists and their sculptures include: “Long Distance” created by Nathan Pierce, “Ark” created by Andrew Arvantes, “Mind Started Rambling” by Dylan Collins, “Offset Jump” by Matt Moyer and “Jaque” by Brigit Ciskowsi.
In offering this public art exhibit, the committee hopes to continue increasing art awareness. In addition, they hope it brings energy to some of the town’s public spaces and inspires the community. This year’s artwork will be on display until the spring of 2023.
Perry County Heritage Tourism invites the community to join in the celebration of the installation at the 2022 Sculpture Artist Reception taking place on Friday, April 29 from 5:00pm-6:00pm at Miget Park. The reception will include a brief presentation, light refreshments, and a chance to meet the 2022 artists. Miget Park is located at 107 S French Ln. in Perryville.
The Perryville Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition is made possible through partnerships with the City of Perryville, Perry County Heritage Tourism, Brewer Monument Company and Main Street Signs.
