Celebrate 30 years of SCULPTURE EXHIBITIONs on the Brooklyn Waterfront July 2 - September 15 East River State Park August 1 - September 15 DUMBO, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Main Street section
Like the sun, this sculpture show continues to radiate energy indefinitely. Conceived in 1982, this sculpture show was created by artists that make sculpture for the love of it, not money; and for themselves and the public, not the institution. All great art movements start out from grass roots energy. But like everything, things change. The movement dies, or it gets picked up by the institution and then freedom is lost. Surprisingly this show has managed to stay alive, stay real and continue to represent grass roots artists, unlike so many of its non profit relatives. On this the 30th year anniversary, we are staging the exhibition at two locations, the East River State Park in Williamsburg and the Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
Using this year’s theme, Perpetual Energy, curators were looking at work that taps into the free energy that surrounds us, like the sun, wind and the current of the East River—sculpture that implies infinity or circular argument, and work that pays homage to the idea of environmental and social sustainability.
