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 four Goldsworthy pieces – including one brand new piece, as well as another 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
- NEW: 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.
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.
