Outdoor sculpture exhibit in Concord invites public to touch the artwork
CONCORD - An exhibit featuring the work of 24 sculptors is free and open to the public -- not just to view but to touch.
The Mill Brook Gallery hosts its 19th Annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit through Oct. 23. Contributing artists include sculptors from around the Northeast.
Their works are scattered around the sprawling lawn that surrounds the indoor gallery.
According to the Concord Monitor, sculptor Michael Alfano’s work stems from his desire for what he calls “democracy in art.” His sculpture can be manipulated, allowing the public to be a part of the art-making process, he said.
“Children will play, but it’s usually the adults that are more hesitant about touching, bending and changing and enjoying art,” he said.
