Progressive art sculpture stroll event set for July 23
A $10 donation and reservation is required to participate
To showcase art recently installed downtown, a progressive event featuring 22 sculptures on loan from regional artists will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 23. The progressive event will start at ArtSpace, 231 E. Main St., Suite 160, and will progress to Prete Plaza, Round Rock Public Library, down Main Street and conclude at Centennial Plaza.
Ballerina, by Ho Baron, is on display at Centennial Plaza.
The progressive event will give arts patrons a chance to meet the artists, learn about the sculptures, meet other arts advocates, as well get something good to drink and eat. This also will be an enjoyable and fun time to learn more about the arts in Round Rock.
Reservations and a $10 donation are required for the Progressive Sculpture Art Stroll. Reservations can be made by contacting Scot Wilkinson, Executive Director for Arts and Culture, at (512) 671-2705.
The City has created a sculpture map application that pinpoints the location, creator and price of piece of art.
The Sculpture Art Stroll was a vision of Round Rock Arts and part of the City's Arts Master Plan (PDF). The goals are to:
- Provide visual interest on the Round Rock downtown area
- Increase the number and variety of outdoor public art installations by local and regional artists
- Stimulate creative thought and reflective conversation among residents and visitors.
The Progressive Sculpture Art Stroll includes sculptors Nick Bakker, Ho Baron, Craig Blaha, John Christensen, Bob Coffee, Cindy Debold, Michael Epps, Herb Long, Sun C. McColgiw, Mary K. Morse, Dar Richardson, Marla Ripperda, and Johnny Shipman.
The Round Rock Arts Board of Directors has teamed up to provide the atmosphere at each of the art sculptures. The progressive event will include drinks, food and music.
