Do you like this story?
Well, with the grand opening of the IMA's new Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park last weekend, we here at OtC were curious, what was your favorite work installed in the park? Please vote using our poll in the right hand sidebar. While we are certainly curious to know what the local arts fans think of the park, we expect the true test of its success may be in whether the general public adopts the park and uses it frequently. I expect once they get to know of it and see it first hand, they just may be swayed to become more involved and interested in the art our city has to offer. If you would like to comment further on your thoughts regarding the Art and Nature Park or any of the individual pieces, by all means do so in this posts comment section. The more discussion of these works the better.
For those of you who feel you need a reminder of the works or were unsure of the name of the work or the artist, I would like to persuade you to take a look at the IMA's nicely designed 100 Acres Publication here. There you shall be able to get any and all information you may need to help you with your decision.
For those of you who have not yet made it out there, I will forgive you on the condition that it had to do with all the rain we have been getting the past week but the next nice day you get, I highly recommend you to go and visit. The grounds are beautiful and the works are amazing. I know picking my personal favorite was quite difficult as there were so many factors to take into consideration. But trust me, I won't hold you to your initial decision. Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in the Art and Nature Park. Job well done. Your hard work has paid off and I believe will have a great impact on the local community. I for one will look forward to its continued evolution in the coming years.
