Yesterday Wilma, Gus, and I adventured to TurnPark in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts. TurnPark is an open-air museum and sculpture park, which also has performances at the outdoor amphitheater. It highlights three main artists and is located on approximately sixteen acres of land.
We had a wildflower-filled adventure to TurnPark. I was excited to visit TurnPark as I have not been to a new sculpture park in some time. The admission was $10 to enter, and thankfully the dogs were allowed in the building to purchase tickets. We began our walk at the former marble quarry, huge boulders reflecting into the water below. There were sculptures throughout our walk. Although we received a map it was a little confusing, and we found several areas blocked off so just followed our eyes, and noses (haha) to make sure we did not miss any of these creative sculptures. There were lots of wildflowers on the grounds, sometimes framing the paths. These wildflowers were difficult to catch up camera however were quite lovely. We found few other visitors, and besides the nearby highway, it was quite peaceful. The sculptures ranged from objective to subjective, and varied in size and shape. Each sculpture had a label, and although I did not read all of them I particularly loved the one that I believe was titled “eyeball”, and one that appeared hammock-like in my mind. The Park was quite small, which surprised me , however definitely a unique location. It was starting to get warmer out on our visit so Wilma appreciated some lounging in the grass on this adventure. Gus does not often stop moving on our adventures, although occasionally will lounge with big sister Wilma, or to eat a tasty stick. So glad we could adventure to TurnPark today (This blog will not be rated).
