Art Tours: Andy Goldsworthy
December 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$25
A special opportunity to experience three outdoor sculptures by world-renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy – including two that are rarely seen.
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, you’ll explore three Goldsworthy pieces – including one that is part of a private collection and rarely available for public viewing.
- Watershed Boulder, a monumental installation that evolves with the rain, ice and snow
- Boulder House, constructed in-situ around an enormous glacial boulder
- Passage, a powerful and experiential piece featured in the Andy Goldsworthy documentary Leaning Into The Wind
All proceeds from this event are donated to support Kensington’s Sawyer Park, a 35-acre public community park that provides a safe and beautiful place for families from across the region to gather outside.
