On July 12th, a sculpture by long-time Boulder resident Sue Quinlan will be dedicated as a permanent part of Benson Sculpture Garden in Loveland, Colorado. Currently, over 140 pieces of sculpture valued at more than $4 million grace the grounds of the park. This extraordinary collection of art is situated around a lagoon surrounded by natural habitat areas. With the Rocky Mountains as a majestic backdrop, Benson Sculpture Garden has been described as "one of the most unique sculpture gardens in the nation". Quinlan’s selected piece, ‘Cultural Pedestrians,’ is part of a series of free-standing concrete and steel pillars that have previously been shown at the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center and in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and several are currently located outside the Boulder Public Library. For 13 years, Quinlan has been a participant in the prestigious Sculpture in the Park show, now in its 31st year. This year’s show will be held August 8-10th. Heralded as one of the finest outdoor juried exhibitions of three-dimensional artwork in the United States, Sculpture in the Park showcases over 2,000 pieces of sculpture created by 170 sculptors from around the world. More information can be found at sculptureinthepark.org. Quinlan shows her work locally at Mary Williams Fine Arts in Boulder.
Congratulations! That is great news.
