We invite everyone to come play at Josephine Sculpture Park this holiday season! Here’s some playful inspiration from our final weeks of Art in Nature Camp (registration open for winter sessions). JSP is free and open every day from dawn til dusk. Plan your visit today!
Part of Josephine Sculpture Park’s mission is to provide transformational opportunities to artists. This fall, Artist in Residence Daniel Shieh created an ambitious and innovative interactive sculpture. Daniel had wanted to make Sky Chamber a reality for awhile, and credited JSP for giving him the resources to do so.
“It’s really valuable to have a residency like this to experiment in and make this thing come true…I think the amount of time and support really let me get to a point where the piece looks professional.” Daniel shares in his week 6 video. “I truly feel this is one of the first projects that looks really well put together, and there’s nothing missing about it. It lets me set a standard for myself of the level of craft I want to have in my future works.”
Experience Daniel’s process through his weekly reflection videos posted below in chronological order. And please visit Sky Chamber at JSP!

Happy nARTure Tuesday, y’all! As the days get cooler and cooler, notice the animals that do not migrate to warmer areas. Several bird species remain in Kentucky year round, like the goldfinch, robin, mockingbird and red-bellied woodpecker. Art in Nature Campers learned birds’ amazing cold weather adaptations and then filled up JSP’s bird feeders. How do you adapt to the cold weather?
Thanks to Wild Birds Unlimited (Frankfort, KY) for donating the bird feeders and food. nARTure Tuesday is sponsored in part by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky and Expree Credit Union. Art in Nature Camp is sponsored in part by Kentucky Ornithological Society.
This Sculpture Saturday, we announce the completion of Daniel Shieh’s newest sculpture, Sky Chamber! In this week’s video, Daniel reflects on his experience at Josephine Sculpture Park as an Artist in Residence. Come experience this sculpture for yourself!
