Artistic Range: Second Annual Tucson Sculpture Festival

Posted By on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 9:57 AM

How does sculptures coming to life and messing with a guy who is none the wiser sound? What about an interactive live performance by a man named Andy and a literal ton of welded sculpture instruments?

Add those with 45 artists showcasing 300 pieces of sculpture and a couple extra local bands in the mix, and you have the opening celebration of the Second Annual Tucson Sculpture Festival, presenting by the Parasol Project, a local artist collective.
According to Daniel Wolverton, last year's show was supposed to be a one-time deal, but demand from artists to continue to sell their work prompted Wolverton, the founder, to begin the project again.

Tonight at 5 p.m. at the Sculpture Resource Center marks day one the two-week festival featuring, live music by The Missing Parts, Anarchestra (an interactive band of metal sculpture instruments), The Fiestacles, a theatrical performance by Parasol Project, refreshments and a "parading tour of venues."
