On Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22, the Farnsworth Art Museum will present a two-day workshop entitled Sculpture Race Blitz Build. The workshop, led by Rockland Sculpture Race organizer and artist Kim Bernard will take place at the museum’s Gamble Education Center, at the corner of Union and Grace Streets from 9 a.m. to 4 pm both days.
Sculpture races are short races of pushed, pulled and pedaled artwork. In this two-day workshop, participants (ages 12 through adult) will create sculptural contraptions, incorporating wheels, made of recycled materials to be raced in the Rockland Sculpture Race on August 11. Individuals, families, and community groups will be guided through brainstorm, design and construction sessions that will result in a race ready sculptural contraption. The workshop will be led by Rockland Sculpture Race organizer and artist Kim Bernard. For more information about the event, see rocklandsculpturerace.org
The fee for this workshop is $220, and $192 for Farnsworth members. For more information or to register, please visit www.farnsworthmuseum.org.
