RIVERARTES: The Art of Placemaking, Aug. 23 – Oct. 26, an exhibition of 75 works of public art by sculptors of national and regional prominence, is designed to celebrate the vitality of Owensboro, enhance its creative placemaking efforts and further establish it as a cultural tourism destination.
The monumental works of art in the exhibition are available for lease. The project follows a national model for collaborative community efforts involving stakeholders focused on the aesthetic enhancement of urban environments. Potential sponsors for leased sculpture include local governments, businesses and individuals, foundations, granting agencies and civic organizations.
Opportunities abound in Owensboro’s new riverfront for the placement of public art, a visual additive creating an atmosphere of fun, excitement and celebration.
Contributions from Friends of the Foundation support education programs for area schools, special entertainment events for families, exhibitions, preservation of the art collection and the historic facility, and help keep the museum open and free to the public six days a week.
Friends of the Foundation receive discounts on museum activities, classes and Gift Shoppe purchases, as well as invitations to gala previews and special events.
