Winter View: Ice Skating at Lynden

Thanks to everybody that made yesterday's ice skating event a big success! The sun stayed out, there was plenty of cider on hand, and I'm pretty sure I spotted several future champions on the ice from my vantage point at the front desk. In fact, we had so much fun, we'll be doing it again. Check back soon for dates.

As some of you may remember, this past October we hosted an event at Lynden that was part of The Dave Project, a series of events put on by the Chipstone Foundation and the Art Museum that were inspired by the Dave Drake pot exhibited in the Theaster Gates installation.

Now, ArtBabble has video from several of those events. Head on over to their website, to watch.

Given the brisk weather we’ve been having lately, a picnic might be the furthest thing from your mind. Nonetheless, we’re pleased to announce that picnic tables will be coming to Lynden soon. Milwaukee’s Flux Design have designed and are currently fabricating a prototype from stainless steel and Ipe wood.

Lately much of my blogging has been related to events happening at the garden, but today I’m posting about several new additions to Lynden. After a very wet summer, Sergio and Patrick were finally able to excavate in order to pour the concrete footings for several sculptures that needed to be resited following the renovation. Masayuki Nagare’s 1964-1965 piece, Bench-Stone has been installed in the north-western quadrant of the garden. The armature for Bernard Kirschenbaum’s 1974 sculpture, Twist for Max, is in place behind Waterfall Hill (the sculpture itself needs to cleaned and will be installed when cleaning is complete.) Finally, Heinz Mack’s Knife Tree, which I can see from the window of our conference room where I’m writing right now, is getting a new base.

Come to Lynden on Wednesday (10 am – 6 pm) or Sunday (12 pm – 5 pm) to see the new additions and visit (or revisit) the garden as fall takes effect!

This is a last minute reminder that tomorrow we’re having our Educators’ Open House. The event runs from 1-4 pm. From our events page:

This event will provide local educators with an opportunity to learn about our year-round educational programs, visit our art studio, outdoor learning center and picnic area, and join a docent for a short tour of the outdoor collection. Light refreshments will be served, and a free field trip will be given away!

This event is free, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
