Original Art Tours
August 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday and Friday, repeating until December 15, 2023

Walk roughly 90 minutes long wooded trails with some mildly uneven terrain
Alnoba’s renowned art collection was created to inspire, delight, challenge and provoke. We are excited to show you our new art pieces in 2023!
Here, art isn’t something precious admired from a distance. It’s bold and wild, springing from Alnoba’s unique natural landscape and daring you to engage.
The collection includes masterworks by some of the most respected artists of our age, including Andy Goldsworthy, Orly Genger, Jaume Plensa, John Lopez, Allan Houser and Ursula von Rydingsvard. We are excited to share with you our brand new art including a hidden gem constructed by Andy Goldsworthy in late 2022, as well as a whimsical journey through winding willow branches formed by Patrick Doherty.
On your tour, our enthusiastic volunteer guides will introduce you to the stories behind the artists and their work. Many of our pieces represent vital themes of social justice and sustainability, challenging us all to go one step further than we thought we could toward a better world.

*Due to its location, the guided tour will not include Andy Goldsworthy, “Boulder House”.
The tour takes place outdoors, sometimes on uneven terrain, with a roughly 2 mile walk. The area around Andy Goldsworthy’s “Watershed Boulder” requires a climb up a fairly steep hill that may be difficult for those with mobility issues.
