Rosen Sculpture Walk

sculpture2008-15_t.jpg sculpture2008-48_t.jpg The Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition is a national juried competition presented annually by the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts at Appalachian State University. Made possible by the generosity of longtime arts supporters Martin and Doris Rosen, this competition continues a long-held tradition of showcasing the best of large-scale, contemporary American sculpture. Each year, 10 sculptures are selected for exhibition, and are sited in outdoor, public settings across campus. Since its establishment in 1987, the competition has become an integral part of An Appalachian Summer Festival, the university’s annual multi-arts celebration. The winner of the Rosen Award winner will be announced during the festival’s annual sculpture walk, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 26, at Farthing Auditorium’s Catherine Smith Gallery.
