Black Mountain Sculpture Stroll

What a neat idea for the town of Black Mountain to really showcase some of its talented artists — we will try to get out and get some photos of the sculptures to post on the blog:

The town of Black Mountain presents a “Sculpture Stroll” now through December 2009. Custom sculpture is showcased at various outdoor sites throughout the town, featuring artists such as Julia Burr, Julia Stout, Dan Howachyn, Tekla, Carro, Dave Taylor, and Marty Cain.

The public is invited to an opening event featuring live music on Thursday, June 18, 7 p.m. at Lake Tomahawk Park, which joins in with the kick-off for this year’s Park Rhythms.
