Copenhagen. Miami Beach. Brooklyn. Summit?
Artist Tom Fruin’s sculpture Maxikiosco, a magnificent stained-glass kaleidoscope of color and light, has been exhibited in major cities around the world, from Buenos Aires to Copenhagen to New York—and now right here in Summit!
That Summit happens to be the latest stop is, of course, no accident. Since 2002, Summit Public Art has installed more than 75 pieces of temporary art throughout our community, many by artists of national and international renown.
This year promises to be one of our strongest yet. From an interactive mural that invites you try on a pair of wings, to an illuminated "light house" that glows at night, to an outdoor photo exhibit that movingly captures the impact of the pandemic on the Summit community, SPA's new season offers several must-see works by a number of internationally-acclaimed artists.
At a time when many museums and galleries have been forced to close, Summit Public Art’s open-air gallery remains free and open and perfect for families and social distancing. As artist Donna Dodson notes, “In times of social isolation we all need the creative distraction artists provide. Art is an essential service."
