About the Exhibition: Mind the Path
Alexander Gelderman’s artwork builds connections between viewer and site, heightening the observer’s perception and understanding of the living, natural environments and enriching their experiences therein. In the exhibition, Mind the Path, the artist builds upon personal connections and discoveries in the land to create a curated journey through a section of Josephine Sculpture Park. The metal and earthen forms draw the viewer’s attention back to the land and the act of moving through it. Enjoy your walk and be sure to Mind the Path.
Mind the Path is part of Gelderman’s University of Kentucky BFA Thesis
