Laumeier Sculpture Park presents an exhibition in celebration and commemoration of its 40th Anniversary year, April 1–July 16, 2017, in the Whitaker Foundation Gallery at the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center. The multimedia exhibition features a selection of works from the institution’s extensive collection of preparatory drawings, prints, works on paper, collages and photographs. The exhibition demonstrates the organization’s leadership in the area of contemporary public art by drawing on the breadth and depth of the outdoor collection and the many ways in which artists have approached temporary and permanent sculptural commissions throughout Laumeier’s history. The exhibition features works by internationally renowned artists.
Laumeier Sculpture Park is free and open daily from 8:00 a.m.–30 minutes past sunset. Beginning Saturday, April 1, the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center is open daily from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
More information about Laumeier’s history and anniversary activities, including a running list of 40 Ways to Celebrate Laumeier’s 40th Anniversary, is available on Laumeier’s website.
