Sculptures of many media and form, created by over 60 artists, will dot the landscape of this 17-acre horse farm at 150 Wild Horse Run, Pittsboro, NC.
This show began in 2002 as part of a group of shows put on by Hunter Levinsohn, Jackie Helvey, Anke Gassen, Hollie Taylor, and Debbie Meyer to honor the victims of 9/11. Attendees, who loved seeing sculpture in an outdoor setting, and artists, who often don’t have a place to display larger sculptures, asked for it to continue. Over 1700 people attended last year’s show during its five-week run.
