Explore the Sculptural Displays of Christopher Curtis in Lifting the Landscape
Christopher Curtis, a renowned artist, works primarily in stone and he often incorporates The work of renowned artist Christopher Curtis will be featured at Tulsa Botanic Garden’s first sculpture exhibit until August 26 at Tulsa Botanic Garden. He works primarily in stone and he often incorporates sculptural welded stainless steel or bronze into his pieces. He began working with stone under the instruction of Paul Aschenbach at the University of Vermont. Though Curtis employs current technology in his work, his abiding fascination is with raw stone. He sees in each stone both its ancient history and its unique shape.
For Curtis, stones are objects, not just material. That makes the discovery, selection and recovery of the stone an important and enjoyable part of his work. Curtis has studied the geologic history of his native Vermont, following the ancient lines of glaciers and inland seas to find stones whose stories resonate with the sculptures they become.
The exhibit will include six large pieces by Curtis placed at venues along the Lakeside Promenade. The mission of the Tulsa Botanic Garden is to promote the beauty and importance of plants and nature to create a more sustainable and harmonious world. We hope to see you there!
