By Taylor J. Hale
STEVENS POINT – Over 500 visitors came to the Stevens Point Sculpture Park (SPSP)’s Fall into the Woods event on Sept. 21. The free event featured aerial ribbon dancers, music, tours of the park and more.
The annual celebration debuted original sculptures by Ann Klefstad of Duluth and Beth Nybeck of Kansas City.
The event also featured the last iron pour session for the Impressions of Stevens Point II project, a community-driven fence and gate installation featuring the artwork of amateur county residents.
SPSP Board Chair Elizabeth Wellso noted the event has grown since its origins.
“(The) number of park visitors has increased in number over the years,” Wellso said. “The celebration is that of celebrating community artwork.”
The new art installations are now available to the public at the park.
The Stevens Point Sculpture Park is located at 900 2nd St., Stevens Point. For more information on the park, visit: http://stevenspointsculpturepark.org/.
