Josephine Sculpture Park’s Fall Arts Festival takes place Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. This free event connects the community with the arts and the land in the most experiential manner, and offers a host of artistic experiences to the public.
The amphitheatre stage is the location for live local musicians and storytellers, while artists conduct free demonstrations and workshops in printmaking, paper sculpture, pottery wheel, batik dyeing, mural painting, art scavenger hunts and more.
Participants have the opportunity to create their own cast aluminum relief sculpture to take home at the Hot Metal Pour, blow glass and forge steel on the anvil ($30-$35). Collaborative projects are created as part of the community art exhibition. For example, at the 2013 Fall Arts Festival, two Lexington-based artists, with assistance from participants of all ages/abilities, created a large-scale, 6 panel mural and a sculptural installation initiated by artists from the Latitude Community, organization for artists working with disabilities.
