UK Art Museum Celebrates Sculpture Gardens With Lecture, Family Day

Published: Oct 4, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 4, 2012) — The Art Museum at the University of Kentucky will celebrate the world of sculpture parks with a day of festivities featuring a talk by Marilu Knode, director of the Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, Mo. Knode will speak at the museum at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7. In addition, the museum will present several activities celebrating their own sculpture garden as part of Family Day, running from noon-4 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.

 

Accredited by the American Association of Museums, Laumeier Sculpture Park is today an institution of international significance. Laumeier provides high-quality learning experiences for the greater St. Louis community and for visitors from all over the world. The many changing exhibitions, concerts, educational programs, lectures and special events developed at the park are for all to enjoy and support the mission of the institution.

 

Before joining the staff at Laumeier, Knode served as associate director/head of research at F.A.R. (Future Arts Research) at Arizona State University. She has worked in the curatorial departments of several arts organizations, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Newport Harbor Art Museum and Huntington Beach Art Center in California.

 

Knode's lecture will discuss the history and growth of the Laumeier Sculpture Park and sculpture parks throughout the U.S. She will also provide insight into the future development possibilities of the Art Museum at UK’s sculpture garden. Her lecture is made possible through the support of LexArts Fund for the Arts

 

The Art Museum at UK's sculpture garden has undergone some exciting changes in the past few months. Over the summer, award-winning landscaper and UK alumnus, Jon Carloftis, designed and installed a new living garden to enhance the outdoor sculpture garden. Also over the summer, the museum added an outdoor sculpture exhibition by popular American artist David Hayes. The show features 20 new sculptures that will be on display through July 1, 2013.

 

In addition to Knode's lecture, sculpture enthusiasts with children can find other activities to celebrate the Art Museum at UK's sculpture garden. The museum's Family Day, running from noon-4 p.m., will include such activities as: making your own found-object sculpture, creating a sidewalk chalk mural, playing a game of sculpture bingo, and building edible sculpture snacks.

 

The sculpture garden of the Art Museum at UK is located between Singletary Center for the Arts and the UK Student Center on Euclid Ave. The Art Museum at UK is part of the UK College of Fine Arts.
