Looking for public art? Beyond Walls has you covered. The inspirational public art exhibition at Robbins Park opened on May 5 and we were there to get the scoop from artists including Scott Froschauer, Jim Gallucci, Harry McDaniel and Amy Hart. We hope to bring similar experiences to the region once we open. Until then, here’s a brief rundown of the event, and information on the sculptures and artists.
The public art project, which is coordinated by the Cornelius Parks, Arts, Recreation and Culture department, had a wonderful opening event. The process involved a national call for artists, which resulted in 34 submissions. A review period followed and 11 pieces by nine artists were selected by the Public Art Committee. Marisa Pascucci, who serves on the Public Art Committee as well as the Advisory Board for Cornelius Arts Center, guided the crowd across the park to view the 11 new sculptures.
Don’t miss wandering through this exhibition, which runs through Jan. 12, 2019.
