Virtual Sculpture Tour Delivers Art to Your Door
Orange County, Fla. – On the last Saturday of every April, International Sculpture Day brings the beauty of three-dimensional art to audiences across the globe. With much of the planet on lockdown this year, Central Florida has hit on a novel way to participate in this annual tradition: We’re going virtual!
This Saturday, April 25th, Terry Olson of the Orange County Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs will lead a desktop tour of some of Orlando’s most eye-catching sculptures. Simple Zoom technology is all you need to join Terry on a walkaround of major sights on the downtown sculptural landscape. Some of the represented artists, including the world-famous Ed Carpenter, will be taking part in the Zoom call to answer questions. The son of the prolific Dorothy Gillespie will also be on hand to share insights he’s gained as curator of her work.
The Orlando Sculpture Tour is entirely free, but space is limited. So arrive early! Start time is 1 p.m. EST. Visit https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89375238103 to join.
International Sculpture Day (#ISDAY) was established by the International Sculpture Center. Last year’s fifth annual celebration included events by more than 800 organizations in over 45 countries.
