SculptureTucson presents inaugural Sculpture Park exhibition through July 4

SculptureTucson, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing Arizona’s cultural landscape through the placement of sculpture in public spaces, establishing a public sculpture park, and becoming a resource for diverse artists and art collectors, presents Rough Terrain, the inaugural exhibition of its new Sculpture Park exhibition program. Large-scale works will be on exhibit through July 4 throughout the park’s sprawling two acres adjacent to the organization’s headquarters at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park located at 3420 E. River Road in Tucson.

“We are thrilled to debut our new Sculpture Park in 2021,” says Barbara Grygutis, SculptureTucson board president. “This exhibition is at the very heart of our mission to build support of large scale art through placing sculpture in public spaces, and we hope the community will enjoy seeing it as much as we have enjoyed orchestrating it.”
