The Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services invite the public to visit the current exhibit of outdoor sculpture in the Council's Sculpture Garden. The garden is located at the Council offices at 134-136 State Street in Montpelier, next door to the Capital Region Visitors Center and is fully accessible.
This year's exhibit features work in marble and steel by sculptors Maeve Doolan, Carlos Dorrien, Carol Driscoll, Iva Fabrikant, Jamie Hatch, Wendy Klemperer, Rick Rothrock, and Casey Wright. The Sculpture Garden is a public/private collaboration that features rotating two-year exhibits of contemporary sculpture created by Vermont artists. Designed in 2002 by Burlington landscape architects H. Keith Wagner and Associates, it offers a place to picnic or engage in quiet reflection in Montpelier's downtown.
The 2013-2015 Sculpture Garden Exhibit was curated by Marie Bernier, former Executive Assistant at the Vermont Arts Council in collaboration with Carol Driscoll, director of the Vermont Carving Studio and Sculpture Center. Special thanks to State Buildings Curator David Schütz, and his assistant Tracy Martin, for their ongoing dedication to bringing art into the downtown Capital complex.
