Maryhill Museum of Art Presents Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit

The Maryhill Museum of Art presents an Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit on view May 14 – October 2.

Maryhill Museum of Art has presented exhibitions of outdoor sculpture annually since 1996.

These exhibitions have provided Pacific Northwest sculptors with opportunities to display large scale works in an outdoor setting. In 2011, five sculptors will exhibit works to complement the 10 that comprise the museum’s permanent collection of outdoor sculpture. The sculptures will be installed throughout the museum’s sculpture garden, which provides a dramatic backdrop for this unique outdoor art experience.

Among the featured artists for 2011 are Leslie Ariel, Daniel Duford, John Mayo and Joseph Warren.

Maryhill’s Outdoor Sculpture Garden features more than a dozen large-scale works by Northwest artists. The Maryhill Overlook is a site-specific sculpture by noted Portland architect Brad Cloepfil; nearby are Lewis and Clark interpretive panels. Four miles east of Maryhill is a life-sized replica of Stonehenge, Stonehenge Memorial, which Sam Hill built to memorialize local men who perished in World War I. Nearby, the Klickitat County War Memorial honors those who have died in the service of their country since World War I.

Admission to the sculpture garden is always free.
