What: Sculpture Competition
When: Saturday, October 26th 2013 – 6:30 p.m.
Where: Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden – northeast of The Marriott in Riverfront Park
Sculpture at the River Market presents, “A Night in the Garden.” It will be held the evening of October 26 in the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden. This fun filled night begins with garden tours, dinner and libations. The event will culminate with a competition between three world-renowned sculpture artists for a $60,000.00 commissioned sculpture to be placed in Riverfront Park. All patrons at “A Night in the Garden” will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite proposal and the winner will be announced at the party. This sculpture – and all others purchased by the Sculpture at the River Market group – a 501c3 non-profit – are donated to the City of Little Rock.
Then, in April 2014, hundreds of sculptures and thousands of visitors will again populate the River Market Pavilions when 2014 Sculpture at the River Market returns. The sculptures will be on display in the River Market Pavilions and in the adjacent area of Riverfront Park. The works featured will include all types of media, style, subject matter, and size.
The sculpture garden features natural terraces and walkways designed by City of Little Rock’s Leland Couch, Mark Webre and John Kinkade of the National Sculptors’ Guild.
The design creates a more intimate space to view smaller works within the Riverfront Park and is ideal for hosting receptions, as well as allowing visitors to enjoy the sculptures in solitude. This dynamic sculpture garden is located north –east of The Marriott in Riverfront Park.
