Saturday Sept 12 is Installation Day!

Saturday artists will be at the park all day installing their sculptures.

It's actually a fun day to come by the park, as you get to see the work-in-progress for many artists who are doing site specific works (like yours truly)..

And you might get asked to hold a ladder, or hand up a rope, or who knows what.  We'll photograph the sculptures at the end of the day, and the show will officially open on Sunday the 13th.  

The reception and tour will be the following Saturday…
