Presented by the Walton Arts Center each year, the Artosphere Festival celebrates art, music and nature with exciting performances, activities and events that the whole family can enjoy!
With the 2018 festival focusing on the importance of water resources and their conservation, environmental artist, Stacy Levy returned to Artosphere to create a temporary art installation, called Topo Map for School Avenue.
Levy, along with volunteers and Fenix Fayetteville artists, completed the five-block-long public artwork located in the heart of downtown Fayetteville during the month of May. Topo Map for School Avenue was made using thermoplastic and features a life-scale topographic map of the terrain between Dickson and Mountain Streets, acting as a visual reminder of the issues of water in Fayetteville’s hilly landscape.
The opening for the art installation is on Friday, June 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Walton Arts Center Bradberry Amphitheater and gardens. The installation will be in place throughout Artosphere and beyond.
For a complete schedule of Artosphere events, please visit the Walton Arts Center website.
