Sculpted To Perfection

Tuscawilla Park will show off its new art installations this month. Selected from a field of 117, 10 one-of-a-kind sculptures were chosen to advance in the Ocala Outdoor Sculpture Competition. These creations are all very different and are comprised of a variety of mediums, including sandstone, concrete, aluminum, steel and scrap metal and will be on display for a 20-month exhibit beginning later this month. Unique to this year’s competition is a solar-powered and kinetic sculpture as well as two new installations in Lake Tuscawilla. The sculptures will settle into their new homes February 12, with a special unveiling reception taking place on February 15. BOBA: Beginning of Bolted Art is a ticketed reception where guests will have the opportunity to partake in docent tours of the sculptures as well as sample culinary delights paired with specialty beverages.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance. For more information and a complete list of the sculptures, contact the City of Ocala Cultural Arts Office at (352) 629-8447.
