BETHEL — Bethel Woods Center for the Arts – the iconic site of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair – is excited to announce the kick off of their Rockin’ the Woods special outdoor exhibit. This event will highlight the work of local artist Wayne Holbert and his Woodstock-inspired sculptures.
The sculptures feature Catskills bluestone — a beautiful material which can only be found in eastern Pennsylvania and southern New York — the bedrock that Bethel Woods is built upon. As a quarryman, Wayne Holbert knows bluestone intimately: how it was formed, how it is cut from the earth, and how it is shaped as a physical material. As an artist, however, he sees the potential of the bluestone as a living, timeless representation of a primitive form, the human condition set in stone.
Senior Director and Curator, The Museum at Bethel Woods, Dr. Neal V. Hitch will host the event leading a walking tour of the exhibit. Drinks will also be provided, and attending media are invited to stay for Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and internationally acclaimed rock musician Grace Potter’s Event Gallery performance. Interviews with Neal and photos of the exhibit are available upon request.
It will be held on Thursday, March 16, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Located at 20 Hurd Road in Bethel.
Media wishing to attend can RSVP to email@example.com by Monday (3/13) as spots are limited. Please contact in advance to arrange an interview on-site.
