The Chicago Sculpture International (CSI), in partnership with the Chicago Park District, will be hosting the “2012-13 Chicago Parks Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition” on display in Chicago’s parks near the downtown lakefront area for an entire year.
“We are excited to feature these artworks in our urban parks environment,” said Fisher Stolz, exhibit organizer and CSI board member.
“We hope they inspire residents and visitors alike to think creatively and perceive their surroundings in new ways.”
“The Chicago Park District is excited to host this inspiring artistic exhibit in our parks,” said Mike Kelly, General Superintendent and CEO. “This exhibition will make opportunities available for people to relax, reflect, and enjoy art in their parks.”
This is the largest Chicago exhibition of outdoor sculptures in over a decade, and features 53 pieces of juried outdoor public art from professional sculptors that are members of the three affiliate groups of the International Sculpture Center: CSI, Mid-South Sculpture Alliance, and the Texas Sculptors Group.
The exhibiting sculptors hale from as close as the West Loop to as far as Scotland.
The exhibition coincides with the International Sculpture Center Conference, held in October 2012 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the work will be on display until the fall of 2013.
This juried public art exhibition will be on view in parks from Belmont Harbor to the Field Museum, and along Stockton Drive from Fullerton Avenue to North Avenue. Most of the sculptures will be located along Chicago’s lakefront path.
