—  Registration for this event has been closed.
Anderson Sculpture Garden

With Curator Sydney Marshall  

On exhibition in the Elizabeth and Byron Anderson Sculpture Garden are a selection of sculptures by renowned public artist Charles Ginnever (1931-2019). The large-scale metal sculptures defy simple understanding and seem to shift and change form as one moves around them in time and space. Join Curator Sydney Marshall on an outdoor walking tour of the exhibition as she shares insight on Ginnever’s career and artistic practice, guiding viewers through the new public art exhibition.
