The second annual Art in the Park Exhibits in Worcester brings the feel of a museum into the outdoors. Some “parks” are outdoor museums like the Arnold Arboretum in Boston and even the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge. Worcester’s Art in the Park brings together sculptures from a variety of New England artists.
The exhibit is put on by the Worcester Cultural Commission and other sponsors and runs from August 6th to October 4. The cost is free so you can’t beat that. You can preview the works which I have to call “modern” at the the Art in the Park Web Page.
There are 20 exhibits and you can find a map of where you can find each exhibit on the web site. They are located in Elm Park. All of the works are intrigueing but my favorites are Seraph the stained glass work by Joseph Ferguson, Einstein’s Onion and Saturn by James Kitchen. Worcester is represented by Susan Champeny with her interesting Chair Arch 9 and Red Totems. This innovative concept should attract visitors from Central Mass and beyond.
