Sculpture in the Park Returns to Loveland, Colorado for 33rd Year
The second weekend in August has long been the highlight of the year for many sculptors and art lovers.
Traveling from across the country and from lands overseas, artists and collectors know that this is the place to be if you are serious about sculpture.
Sculpture in the Park has a long standing tradition of attracting the highest caliber of sculptors in a variety of media. The show takes place in Loveland’s Benson Sculpture Park and new pieces are added to the city’s collection every year as a result of the show.
Thirty years ago many people categorized the show as being filled with bronze sculptures of cowboy art. While western art is part of the show’s heritage and some of the finest examples are on display, the broad range of media, styles and subject matter has made this show one of the best in the world.
Whether you are interested in glass art, stone or wood carvings, cast bronze and stainless steel, or any other materials, you can find something that appeals to you here.
Like traditional, classical art forms–yep, they are here. Some examples are works by Bobbie Carlyle and Victor Issa.
Prefer contemporary, modern works, they are here too.
This outdoor sculpture show brings the beauty of Colorado and sculptors together for a wonderful weekend. There are always new artists juried in to the show as well as longstanding favorites, some of whom have been there for every year of the show.
From Acott to Woodbury, there are artists to delight, intrigue, and amaze…and works to fall in love with and take home.
You can see examples of works that will be on display at the 2016 show here.
And if all of that is not enough, there are 2 other shows happening right across the street.
For the 2nd year, Vermillion Productions is bringing their Fine Art and Wine Festival to Loveland. And for the 50th, yes, that is 5-0 year, the Art in the Park event will also take place.
