On View in the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park
Dates: May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018
Open 7 days a week, Dusk to Dawn, self guided tour
Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 15 regional artists on RoCA's new nature trails, just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley, the sculptors pay homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in Rockland. Artists address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. These trails help you reconnect with nature and relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ so prevalent today. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. Sarah Haviland’s large metal bird, Spirit of Place, glistens through the trail while Michael Natiello’s,Red Neck Gong, reminds us of the solitude and tranquility in nature. Denis Folz’s Nailed It sculpture brings a sense of humor and JoAnn Brody’s female Totems/Bones gives a tribal feeling to the trails. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. It is our hope that this tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors in the Hudson Valley and Rockland.
The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY.
