High School Sculpture Competition

Presented by:
Excursions by CityVision

These amazing sculptures by high school art students keep getting more creative and elaborate every year. You can find the sculptures on the pathway that connects the fountain and the Corks & Chefs tent in front of City Hall.

We can’t wait to see what these future artists create this year!

2018 Sculpture Concept & Challenge
Project: “Land Connections”

Land Art gained popularity in the 1960’s & 70’s with forerunners like Robert Smithson, Christo & Jeanne Claude, Andy Goldsworthy and James Turrell.  Land Art can be a seamless interaction of existing land and added materials.  Other examples of Land Art, often called ’Earth works’, include works that boldly differentiate land and material. Land Art often relies on perspective for the piece to realize.
