View Sculptures Outdoors with Hopkins ArtStreet
The Hopkins Center for the Arts has sculptures on display outside through a public art loan program. It’s called Hopkins ArtStreet.
The select, juried public art display is in its 10th year. It’s a fun way to view art outdoors with the nicer weather.
“It’s a means to provide art in an accessible format to all the residents and visitors to Hopkins,” said Jim Clark, visual arts manager at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
The Hopkins ArtStreet features six sculptures on display for a year. The work comes in from all over the country. The artists receive a stipend to help cover transportation costs.
The Hopkins Center for the Arts announced sculpture design winners as part of the event. They include:
- Adults’ choice winner – Ian Wunderlich’s “New Obelisk,” located directly in front of center
- Children’s choice award – Kyle Fokken’s “Sum Pig”
- Juror’s choice award – “Rift” by James & Ryan Pederson, located on east side of downtown park
Map for Taking the Strolling Tour
To take a tour, the Hopkins Center for the Arts has a map of the ArtStreet exhibits. You can either follow on your smartphone or download and print. You’ll see locations for six pieces that are on temporary display as well as a number of pieces that are on permanent display.
“The wonderful thing about Hopkins ArtStreet is it’s truly accessible to all. This work being outside on a beautiful day such as this, people can be walking around and checking them out,” said Clark.
This year’s exhibit runs until the end of May. Clark hopes to have all new work installed by the first week of June.
