New Sculpture Garden at the Muckenthaler

As there is still uncertainty regarding when their art gallery will be able to reopen, the Muckenthaler Cultural Center is adding a sculpture garden on its lawn so people can still enjoy art, at a safe distance, outdoors.

The first sculptures were installed on May 8, and they are by local artist Bret Price. The first piece going in is called “Godot.”

Bret Price is a contemporary sculptor of monumental steel. Throughout his career, Price has been interested in the challenges of raw material against the forces of nature, first beginning his explorations in clay and gradually working up in size and complexity to reach heights of 35 feet and weighing up to 7.5 tons. Whether the work is large or small, Bret’s focus is to convey an unexpected sense of movement and balance.

Price has been collected into public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, notably the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Pepsico Collection in New York.
