Westlands Park Sculptures
Once again, the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council has partnered with the Museum of Outdoor Arts to bring public art to Westlands Park. This year the outdoor exhibit will feature three new works from Chicago based artist Neil Goodman. Currently a professor of art at Indiana University Northwest, Goodman's work has been featured in "Art Forum", "Art in America" "art News" and "Sculpture Magazine. Goodman’s work is not rooted in organic forms. His objects look like physical manifestations of mathematical principals, equations somehow made dimensional and wrought in metal and fiberglass. For all their weight and bulk, they have an airy purity about them, like music. To walk among them is a little like listening to a Bach Fugue. The three works, "Rudder", "Wind" and "Reach" will be on display in Westlands Park through August 2019..
