Okay, so this is a really great opportunity for artists who make public sculptures and installations: Socrates Sculpture Park will award 15 artists $5,000 and a five month studio residency this winter.
When Richard Long said “a work of art can be a journey,” he meant it literally. In 1967 Long formed a line by walking back and forth along a stretch of grass. Toronto-based curator Earl Miller calls it the first artist’s walk, the subject of his exhibit at Dorsky Gallery in Long Island City. “Artists’ Walks: The Persistence of Peripateticism,” which opens on Sunday, exhibits the rejection of studio-based practice via the (recorded) wanderings of artists.
