Description: The Department of Art & Design at Anna Maria College announces New England Sculpture an installment of four public works on the Paxton, MA campus. The exhibition continues the example set during the previous academic year, which featured collaboration between the College and Art in the Park, Worcester. Exhibiting artists are from Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, and feature Saturn by James Kitchen, Metro by Phil Marshall, Nigella Damascena (Love in a Mist) by Shawn Farrell, and Watersports by John Weidman.

This academic year, Anna Maria College seeks to galvanize the role of public art on campus. A spacious venue known for its natural beauty, the display becomes a highlight of the visual landscape. This exhibit proposes to explore the potential energy contained in the sculptural form. Each 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.

College leadership in collaboration with the Department of Art & Design seek to provide 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. Contact David Wackell for details at dwackell@annamaria.edu.
