Skowhegan, in conjunction with Socrates Sculpture Park, is pleased to announce the fifth annual SkowheganPERFORMS, which will take place Saturday, October 3 from 1-5PM.

This year's SkowheganPERFORMS considers the picturesque and the sublime. The performances reveal, and revel in, the beautiful and the terrifying—as mediators, frames, or contexts. Performances are one moment or ongoing, take place at specific locations or throughout the entire park, and necessitate various levels of participation from audience members and existing sculptures.

Skowhegan would like to thank the Skowhegan Alliance Performance Committee [Jesus Benavente (A '12), Claudia Bitran (A '14) & Gabriela Salazar ('11)] and the staff at Socrates Sculpture Park for its support of this event.

We hope to see you there!

Socrates’ Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition is the setting for SkowheganPERFORMS. Marking the fifteenth anniversary of this annual exhibition program, EAF15 features fifteen new commissions created over the summer in the park's outdoor studio. Rather than a thematic exhibition, each artist has a distinct artwork that embodies his/her exploration of public sphere sculpture. Diverse in subject and approach, the works provide critical considerations on subjects ranging from modern interpretations of Romanticism to contemporary statuary, from explorations of urban design to the trajectories of the African Diaspora.
