I was fortunate enough to have a personal tour of Turn Park Art Space yesterday. Situated around an old quarry in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts, it has a unique architecture to the building that welcomes visitors to it. The majority of the art is sculptural and situated in the natural environment outside. Being that this is a young art space that is less than a year old, there is a lot of room for functions and additional sculpture. I truly enjoyed the use of ...
