Art Around Campus

This summer, Glimmerglass partners with independent curator Sydney Waller to bring an art installation of benches to campus. Artists Charles Bremer, Joel Grimaldi, James Gregg Herman, Katarina Isaksson, David Krchelich, Elizabeth Nields and Ann Reichlin have designed art benches specifically for display on the Glimmerglass Festival grounds. Flight Patterns is an installation of 10, 16-foot Japanese-style wind vane banners, created by nationally preeminent aerial sculptors and kite makers George Peters and Melanie Walker of Boulder, Colorado. The benches and wind vane banners are available for purchase, and the artists have generously agreed to donate a portion of sales to Glimmerglass.

Bids for the purchase of the art benches will be accepted until August 24. For more information, contact Ellie Walker at (607)547-0700 x208 or ewalker@glimmerglass.org.
