Art-Out Moment: Huntsville Provides Community Sculpture Tour ‘Spaces’

Art is invading the town of our current residence. Sculptures from around the land have been commissioned and brought to the space town of Huntsville. The sculptures from the tour, dubbed SPACES, will be located all over the community.

Created by artists from as far away as upstate New York, the pieces will be located around the Courthouse Square, outside the Huntsville Museum of Art and Von Braun Center.

Others will be on the campuses of Alabama A&M University and the University of Alabama in Huntsville, as well as Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment on Seminole Drive.

We suppose firing up the old digital camera and wandering the streets for art sightings is in the future. Our Flickr account has been suffering for far too long now.

The following bit is obviously of interest to our tech savvy sensibilities but no set plan on how to access mobile phone or GPS information has presented itself to us. The last installation is said to be up by December 2nd and the tour will last until 2012.

We’re guessing an “app for that” will be available soon enough.

There will be docent-led walking tours, cell phone and GPS-guided tours and even a “People’s Choice Award” to see which sculpture resonates most with the public.

Beginning: Now

Ending: Fall 2012

Official site: Spaces
