Lush spreads of sculpture on the land grace the beginning and end of this beautiful, 200-page, full color, 11 1/2" x 10 1/2" hardbound volume. Sarah Stromeyer's "Dear Reader" welcomes with the story of how the Park came to be. From here the book is in the voice of the artist, David Stromeyer.
David's words and historical images tell the story of his coming to Vermont as a young man to realize his vision – the marriage of art and land.
He then invites the reader to experience the arc of creating a new sculpture – from a sketch to a 20,000 pound structure – in this richly illustrated and narrated section.
Afterwards, in "Investigations Over Time," David addresses what urges him to be a maker, his influences, and how he thinks about his art.
This book will intrigue Park visitors, art professionals, landscape architects, engineers, artists, art professors and students, as well as the general public.
