About this event

Walks lasts roughly 3 hours on wooded trails over some uneven terrain.

Andy Goldsworthy is a sculptor, photographer and environmentalist who produces site-specific sculptures and land art in natural and urban settings. The materials used in Andy Goldsworthy’s art includes mud, pinecones, snow, stone, leaves, twigs and water.

On this tour, a docent will take you on an exploration of three Goldsworthy pieces – inlcuding two pieces that are special to this tour.

  • Watershed Boulder, a monumental installation that evolves with the rain, ice and snow
  • Boulder House, constructed in-situ around an enormous glacial boulder
  • RECENTLY ADDED: Five Ten, an impactful native stone building built around a recently discovered rustic and timeless car that tells a story through unique features in its wheel, and bullet holes throughout the chassis.
