May 12, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$65
Thursday May 12th from 4PM to 7PM
Includes time to enjoy a glass of wine from the cash bar and a stroll around Alnoba’s grounds and art.
Andy Goldworthy is one of the pioneers of the environmental and land art movement, particularly known for his ephemeral installations in remote locations built out of leaves, sand, ice, wood and other materials found on-site. These startling and dramatic works are captured through photography. Goldsworthy also creates more permanent structures, such as the three iconic pieces nestled in remote areas of the Alnoba grounds, including Watershed Boulder and Boulder House.
In this special one-night-only event at Alnoba, you’ll have the opportunity to hear directly from this living legend of the contemporary art world about the process and inspiration behind his unique and powerful work.
