The grounds at the Pepsico Offices in Purchase, NY could easily rival the Guggenheim with the amount of architectural planning and meticulous detail that is easily seen while exploring the Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens. It gives the feel of a mystical place; a fairy ring in the forest at midnight where you actual witness them dancing. Victor Salmones’s “The Search” requires a visit to the Stream Garden and for anyone who has wished for a one of these, you can simply visit from 7am-7pm everyday from April to October and 7am-5pm from November to March.

Visitors come from all over to view the sculptures themselves, stroll through the grounds and even take a jog with a friend. Even driving the loop offers a unique peak at all of the architectural landscaping that was required in the presentation of these beautiful and often astounding pieces of artwork. There is no excuse not to visit, it’s free all the time and open year round. During my next visit I plan to explore the paths “less traveled”, visit the courtyard and bring lunch to share and eat at the Picnic Grove!

It’s been a pretty quiet over here at Free Art Events because recently I took a leap of faith and decided to quit my “9 to 5” in order to do media marketing full time and although it has been successful and I have been visiting a few art events, I haven’t been left as much time to post as I would like. So I’m getting back on the horse, so to speak, in order to put some more love into the blog!

There are a couple of things going on this coming week that I’m pretty excited about: the first is a chance to visit Trenton, NJ for Art All Night, a 24-hour free art event meant for all ages. It will be the first out-of-town visit for Free Art Events and I’m very happy to give my neighboring Garden State a visit!

The second is an old favorite that will be coming to town this weekend. The Bruce Museum will be exhibiting drawings from Picasso’s studio and on Tuesday (as always!) it will be free to visit.

Lastly, it has been on my agenda to visit the Donald M. Kendall Pepsico Sculpture Gardens and I plan on visiting tomorrow morning after my daily run across the way at SUNY Purchase. If you’re in the area come give a wave!

Look for pics from this weeks journey and other news!
