Sculpt and Run is an artist-led running event between two sculpture parks, following a mile-long trail of public art installations on Midsummer Boulevard in Central Milton Keynes. To enter the run, you simply turn up to the starting line in a wearable sculpture.
The run will take place at 1:30pm on Sunday 16th September, starting at the ‘Light Pyramid’ (Liliane Lijn, 2012) in Campbell Park and finishing at ‘3B Series, No.2’ (Bernard Schottlander, 1968-70) in Fred Roche Gardens.
The lead artist invites everyone to attend 3 evening workshops where space and materials will be provided to help with the development of wearable sculpture.
Prizes will be awarded on the day to ‘Fastest Artist’, ‘Best Design Wearable Sculpture’ and ‘Most Collateral Damage’.
Sculpt and Run is an invitation to join a cross-cultural event, where running and art making are brought together to celebrate two parallel cultures within a community of over 300,000 residents.
The event is the start of a conversation about the ‘collective ritual’ of running and art-making and its impact on our cultural identity in Milton Keynes.
If you are interested in joining the evening workshops, please express your interest by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Sculpt and Run’.
The performance event will take place on Sunday 16th September, meeting point at The Light Pyramid in Campbell Park, finish point at Fred Roche Gardens.
