THE MISSION OF LOOKOUT SCULPTURE PARK
Lookout Sculpture Park, founded to provide services to
artists and the public, seeks to cultivate international interaction,
environmental amelioration and educational outreach. The visual arts are
vital to society and artists have a responsibility to share their ideas
and works with others. To serve that dynamic, Lookout Sculpture Park offers
an artistic, intellectual and challenging experience to artists and the
community. The Park's proximity to New York City and Philadelphia provides
access to these remarkable centers of culture, while its rural setting
allows artists to create works surrounded by nature in a supportive environment.
Beyond Lookout Sculpture Park's mission in Pennsylvania, the Park also
offers sculpture exhibitions and residencies in rural and urban environments
around the world.
