Description: The Department of Art & Design at Anna Maria College announces the third annual outdoor exhibition: Art in the Park, Worcester at Anna Maria College. The exhibition features four sculptures on display from September 2019  May 2020. The exhibiting artists hail from Conneticut, Massachusetts and New York. Their works are viewed in the following order when entering the Paxton, MA campus: Drew Goerlitz, Templum III; Vera Angelico, Home; Tom Matsuda, Purification; and Vicente Garcia, Untitled Stainelss Steel.

This collaborative effort between Art in the Park, Worcester and Anna Maria College introduces public art to the college campus. A spacious venue known for its natural beauty, the display becomes a highlight of the visual landscape. This exhibit proposes to explore diversity of color and material, as well as featuring traditional, interactive, and performance-based sculptural forms. Each sculpture has distinctive characteristics that lend to the seasonal calendar of Central Massachusetts: on snowy surfaces, in rusty fall colors, and throughout verdant spring, morning mist and lively sunshine mark the intervals and testament of their quotidian presence.

The Worcester Cultural Council, under the direction and leadership of Gloria Hall, began Art in the Park in 2008. Ms. Hall, currently the Executive Director of Art in the Park, with the Department of Art & Design at Anna Maria College, initiated this partnership to provide the campus and community with occasions to interact more intimately with the work, enriching daily life and deepening the beholders relationship to the art and surrounding space.

The public, students, and staff are invited to explore and enjoy these sculptures throughout the academic year. Join Anna Maria College as various programs, and sculpture walks celebrate this new partnership. Materials and information about the sculptures are available by visiting the Office of Admissions or the Art Center in Miriam Hall.

A performance by Tom Matsuda et all, Purification, will occur on Tuesday, September 24, gathering at 6:15 pm behind the newly renovated Campus Center. Be prepared for ritual, music and fire! A reception in The Hub will follow. Contact David Wackell for more details or to arrange a sculpture tour for class or constituents,
