Bronze Sculpture Symposium
An outdoor public art trail of original bronze sculptures will be unveiled by the Yellow Springs Arts Council on June 1 at 1:00 PM in downtown Yellow Springs. The trail, comprised of four sites, features work created by four national guest artists during last October’s National Bronze Sculpture Symposium: John Weidman of Brookline, NH, Susan Byrnes of Cincinnati, OH, D’jean Jawrunner of Tucumcari, NM, and Brian Maughan of Yellow Springs.
The Unveiling Ceremony and Walking Tour will begin at 1:00 pm at Mills Lawn Elementary School on Walnut Street – the location of Byrnes’ sculptures – and will proceed to each of the other three locations: Mills Park Hotel (in construction), Yellow Springs Federal Credit Union, and a Dayton St. Wall. A public reception at the Yellow Springs Arts Council’s Community Gallery at 111 Corry St. will follow, where one bronze sculpture from each artist will be available for purchase to benefit future symposia (recommended minimum donation of $2500.00).
The National Bronze Sculpture Symposium and Trail, funded in part by awards from the Ohio Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Yellow Springs Community Foundation, Morgan Family Foundation, and an anonymous underwriter, is a Yellow Springs Experience, which is produced by the Yellow Springs Arts Council in collaboration with other creative community partners.
