Art in the Orchard is an outdoor sculpture exhibit set on the bucolic grounds of Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton, MA.
This unique exhibit will take place between Saturday August 13th and Sunday October 30th, 2011, and is the first edition of what will become a biennial public art event. 21 sculptures by 15 local and regional artists will be installed along a footpath meandering through this working farm set on a hillside with spectacular views of the Mt Tom range as backdrop.
Art in the Orchard will be open daily and offer visitors a destination where they can enjoy the beauty of both Art and Nature.
Easthampton is located in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, close to the intersection of Interstate I-91 and the Mass Pike.
