The temporary sculptures along Kenosha’s lakefront landscape will remain in place for another year as a result of planning efforts being thwarted by the pandemic.
Typically, the Sculpture Walk – HarborPark changes every two years. However, the current sculptures will instead remain until September 2022.
“It takes eight months to plan for the Sculpture Walk,” said Sculpture Walk Project Manager Natalie Strohm. “The critical early stages of that planning were impacted as a result of not knowing whether we would be able to gather to de-install the current exhibit and install new sculptures, along with other factors. It requires a great deal of in-person collaboration and physical labor to install the sculptures.”
The current temporary exhibit sculptures are:
- “Flambay” by Ted Garner of Chicago, sponsored by Abatron
- “Magic” by John Adduci of Chicago, sponsored by The Kloss Foundation
- “Both Sides” by Maureen Gray of Interlochen, Michigan, sponsored by the Kenosha Community Foundation
- “Newly Discovered” by Trenton Baylor of Caledonia, Wisconsin, sponsored by Snap-on Inc.
- “Moose” by Paul Bobrowitz of Colgate, Wisconsin, sponsored by Uline
- “Here” by Ruth Aizuss Migdal of Chicago, sponsored by Visit Kenosha
- “Celestial Trio” by Bruce Niemi of Kenosha, sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Clifton Peterson
- “On Balance” by Paul Bobrowitz of Colgate, Wisconsin, sponsored by Trish Petretti
- “Xuberant!” by Craig Snyder of Plymouth, Minnesota, sponsored by John and Shawna Neal
- “Twist” by Michael Young of Chicago, sponsored by Mary Tunkieicz
- “Vietnam Veterans Memorial” by Bruce Niemi of Kenosha, sponsored by the City of Kenosha.
“Planning is underway now for the 2022-24 Sculpture Walk – HarborPark,” Strohm said. “This beautiful temporary public art enhances our lakefront and is enjoyed by visitors to Downtown Kenosha.”
The Arts Fund is a component fund of the Kenosha Community Foundation. The Sculpture Walk is the major fundraising effort of the Arts Fund, which provides grants to local art initiatives.
