The community of Lana, not far from Bolzano in Northern Italy, is inviting proposals for sculpture projects from sculptors and enviromental artists, for the South Tyrol Sculpture Path outside Lana. The South Tyrol Sculpture Path is a Land /Art project organised by LanaArt. The event will be held between June 26 and July 13, 2003.
The sculpture route is a footpath through the environment surrounding the
town, a walk to become aware of the natural rythm of human passage through
the environment as opposed to the rapid speed of our everyday life. The aim
of LANA ART is to create the right conditions to enjoy art in the open air.
This organising principle does not imply rigid rules to be followed, but
only dynamic developments and intentional processes that are open to
differences and unexpected events.
