Clymer Park Art Walk and Sculpture Garden Dedication
March 28, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm-
The City of Gulfport will formally dedicate the Clymer Park Art Walk and Sculpture Garden on Saturday, March 28 from 4 – 6 p.m. The ribbon cutting will mark the grand opening of the Walk and Sculpture Garden located within Clymer Park at Gulfport Blvd. and Beach Blvd. S.
The Clymer Park Sculpture Garden is one of the largest, municipal outdoor installations of public art, in Pinellas County. The sculptures are located along a walking path that weaves through two adjoining parcels of the park. The walk includes seating at each installation, and is surrounded by a variety of trees, enabling visitors to enjoy each art piece in a serene setting. The artistic elements, combined with nature, create a compelling invitation to the park, which connects the City’s downtown waterfront, shops and restaurants to Gulfport Boulevard.
Gulfport’s first phase of the art walk and sculpture garden was commissioned, by the City, in 2014, and contains ten pieces of varying inspiration and materials. Several of the pieces are designed to enable visitor interaction. The artists of the Clymer Park Sculpture Garden are , Owen Pach, Tom Pitzen, Jonathan Schork, Frank Strunk III and Susanne Vernon. They will be present, at the dedication, to discuss their works and creative process.
The dedication is co-hosted by the Gulfport Neighbors and will take place on 25th Avenue at Beach Blvd. For more information, please call Justin Shea, Cultural Facilities Events Supervisor at (727) 893-1066.
