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.”
Rough Terrain features 20 pieces and is open to the public for viewing by appointment Wednesdays through Fridays, from noon to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Featured artists displaying large-scale works include Rotraut Klein Moquay, Fred Borcherdt, Al Glann, Kevin Caron, Steven Derks, Willie Ray Parish, Jeff Timan, Elizabeth Frank, Hector Ortega, Greg Corman, Pat Frederick, Jonquil LeMaster, Julia Arriola, Adrian Wall, Joy Fox McGrew, Jimmy Descant, Peter Eisner, Joan Waters, John Nelson, Barbara Jo Borch and Alex Heveri. Many of these are also artists that have participated in SculptureTucson’s Sculpture on the Street program, which partners with Tucson businesses to place large-scale art along highly-trafficked roads and in outdoor public venues for all to enjoy while driving through town.
All sculptures on display are available for sale by artist.
Through July 4
