Exhibit runs May 15 through Oct. 15 with June 13 opening
Beacon 3D announces that 20 artists will exhibit their work in the third annual outdoor public art event from May 15 through Oct. 15, and that the official opening and ribbon-cutting with Beacon Mayor Randy Casale will take place on Second Saturday, June 13.
The following 20 artists will each exhibit one sculpture along or near Main Street in Beacon: Kenneth Wright, Naomi Teppich, Jennifer Smith, Judy Sigunick, Peter Schlemowitz, Judith Rose, Jon Reichert, Rosemarie Oakman, Franc Palaia, Lori Merhige, Maria Lago, Matt Kinney, Insun Kim, Sarah Haviland, Ian George, Geoff Feder, Charles Engleman, Ada Cruz, John BonSignore and Ed Benavente.
The work of 10 new artists will be included in this year’s lineup, and new locations around the city will show works as part of efforts to create a true sculpture trail along Main.
Beacon 3D will introduce a free downloadable app, developed specifically for the 2015 exhibition by Eric Feinstein, founder and creator of Otocast, LLC. Viewers will be able to scan the bar code with their smartphones and listen to brief statements about the sculptures in the artists’ own voices. Otocast can be downloaded for free from the iTunes store.
The purpose of Beacon 3D is to provide and enhance the community’s access and enjoyment of art in a free long-term installation as well as to promote and highlight the work of a diverse range of actively engaged artists. In 2014, Beacon 3D, just in its second year, was awarded the Dutchess County Arts Award for Art in Public Places, a program of Arts MidHudson.
