UNIVERSITY PARK | Celebrate the nation’s birthday by walking in the shadows of some of America’s greatest artists from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Monday at Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park at Governors State University.
The All American Sculpture Walk will focus on Mark di Suvero’s masterful “Yes! For Lady Day” and then discuss works influenced by abstract impressionism, the first fully American movement in world art history. You’ll see how American artists used their revolutionary vision to influence art around the world.
Sculpture park director and curator Geoffrey Bates will conduct the All American Sculpture Walk, which is free and open to the public. Participants should meet at 9 a.m. on the patio outside GSU’s Hall of Governors, 1 University Parkway.
Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park is located at Governors State University’s main campus in University Park. The park is free of charge and open from dawn to dusk 365 days a year. For more information about the sculpture park, visit www.govst.edu/sculpture or call (708) 534-4486.
