ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Featuring a wide range of artists, materials, and concepts, the “Out and About” Sculpture Exhibit
highlights the creative potential of mass in relation to its surrounding environment. This exhibit seeks to
challenge our audience’s definition of form, and to stimulate an overall awareness of space in the everyday
lives of each viewer.
