Rotraut’s works will be on display in the park, 3420 E. River Road, until June 1. Entrance to see them is free.
“We were glad she said yes to that,” said Barbara Grygutis, a fellow sculptor and one of the founders of SculptureTucson. “I think she was thrilled to be able to show so many pieces in one place at the same time. There aren’t many large sculpture parks like this in Arizona.
Visitors who came to see SculptureTucson’s first exhibit, titled “Rough Terrain” at the park in 2021, will notice major improvements in the landscape; most notably the new drainage system which will help prevent the land from being flooded during this year’s monsoon.
“When it flooded it really flooded,” Grygutis said. “We had more rain than expected last year.
The Rotraut Show is just one of the events taking place at the Sculpture Park in 2022. On January 29-30, ScultpureTucson will be hosting a Sculpture Celebration, with extended hours for people to come and enjoy Rotraut’s work. .
The property will soon begin offering workshops and monthly blacksmith demonstrations, open to the public, courtesy of the Arizona Artist Blacksmith Association.
And from March 18 to 20, SculptureTucson will host its next sculpture festival exhibition and sale after canceling the event for the past two years due to COVID.
