“Sculpture on the Lawn” is an outdoor exhibit on the front lawns of Colt School, Linden Place and the Bradford-Dimond-Norris House, Hope Street, Bristol, RI
May- Labor Day 2020
BRISTOL— Linden Place Mansion is participating in Sculpture on the Lawn, Bristol Art Museum’s outdoor exhibit featuring works by artists Michael Cochran, Mike Hansel, Rob Lorenson, Paul Menensis, Matt Noiseux, Derek Riley and Mark Wholey. The sculptures may be viewed while walking or by car along Hope Street, downtown Bristol.
Sculpture on the Lawn is organized by guest curator Rob Lorenson. Curator notes: “With the closure of institutions of art as part of social distancing, public art has a role to play in availability. Outdoor sculpture is always available and in spaces that are conducive to social distancing. In this exhibit you don’t even need to get out of your car to enjoy the artwork. Over the duration of the exhibit and multiple encounters – a real relationship with the artwork can form.”
Both Linden Place Mansion and The Bristol Art Museum are responsible for providing our community enrichment and cultural enjoyment at all times. During this global pandemic, the arts have a special voice in helping communities remain hopeful and connected. “Art on the Lawn” aims to offer our community the enjoyment of art from a distance.
