If you’ve driven down Heights Boulevard lately, you’ve probably noticed several new pieces of sculpture gracing the Esplanade. This new art is brought to us as part of Art Trek 2017 by Gus Kopriva of Redbud Gallery and local artist and community activist Chris Silkwood. This is the 4th and final curated sculpture exhibit the pair have created for the Heights Esplanade.
Sculptures are placed along the Esplanade at the 400, 600, 800, 900, 1200, 1300, 1600, and 1800 blocks of Heights Boulevard. The whimsical designs chosen for the exhibit include a horned frog, Humpty Dumpty, a Bald Eagle plane, and house on stilts, just to name a few. If you’re lucky enough to catch a day of nice weather before it gets unbearably hot, the best way to enjoy the exhibit is a long walk or jog down the Esplanade from one end to the other.
Featured artists include James Ciosek, Jon Clark, Dylan Conner, Noah Edmundson, Yuliya Lanina, Zak Miano, Randall Mosman, and Nicola Parente. The pieces will be on display until December 2017, so if you haven’t had the chance to check them all out yet, there’s still plenty of time. After the exhibit ends, they will be available for sale at Redbud Gallery.
