Western Sculpture Park

Western Sculpture Park

As we carefully reconvene for activities at Western Sculpture Park this summer, we are excited to share with you some updates on what we have in store for you this year! eARTh Lab weekly youth workshops will start back up this June, we will be partnering with the Peace Celebration through the Art of Food in Frogtown and Rondo in June and September, and the Night Light projection mapping creative cohort will be painting the park with light during the last weekend of September!

eARTh Lab
We are excited to partner with the Capitol Region Watershed District again on eARTh Lab! The workshops will focus on getting to know our regional watershed system and how water flows through our landscape. Through this workshop series, participants will explore the relationships between human-made developments and our water sources through hands-on intersectional activities of art, landscape design, planning, engagement, and activism. We aim to build knowledge around the environmental and social impact of how we shape our community and interact with the watershed.

When: On Tuesdays at 1pm – 3pm from June 22nd to August 24th
Where: Western Sculpture Park, meet at the rain garden at the center of the park!
If you have a party of more than 10 people, please contact Mayumi Park at mayumi@pubicartstpaul.org at least 3 weeks prior to the eARTh Labworkshop date your group is planning to attend.
