Spirit of Place is a privately run triennial
show of outdoor, site-specific, temporary sculpture primarily by American
artists. Located on approximately 12 acres near Burlington, VT, the secluded,
undeveloped grounds offer superb natural settings in field, pond in woods.
The 1998 show on the theme of the Elements was curate by Janie Cohen of
the Fleming Museum and Knox and Lucy Cummin, the CO-directors.
Materials used ranged from those native to the site to fabricated
steel, stencilled blue tarps, and bamboo. On opening day, two live performances
on site in the woods, pond and field further animated the land.
Spirit of Place supported temporary interpretative sculpture
that is imperfect and risky, fragile and brave. Sculpture that interprets
the natural words seems to us a most appealing and effective way of getting
people involved creatively with the earth.
Artist who have shown at Spirit of Place include B Amore
and Woody Dursey, Laurie Palmer, Barbara Andrus, Bill and Ruth Botzow,
James Boorstein, Kerstin Nichols, Kate Pond and Arden Scott.
The next show will be in July of 2001; interested artists
