Discover New Sculptures at Helen Day Art Center Exposed

The Exposed Sculpture Exhibition in Stowe draws visitors from all over.

A good number of people seek out artistic projects that go beyond the traditional museum experience. These projects often allow visitors the opportunity to interact with the work on a more intimate level. Those seeking this sort of artistic connection may be drawn to an exhibit unique to a town in Vermont. Stowe, Vermont, is home to incredible scenery, historic surroundings and a wealth of original art. Residents and visitors alike are able to enjoy miles of original sculpture at the Helen Day Art Center: Exposed.

This sculpture exhibition, which is now in its 24th year, showcases the outdoor sculptures of participating artists. Visitors have the unique opportunity to walk among the creations, as sculptures are housed on the Helen Day Art Center property as well as installed along the Recreation Path in Stowe, a scenic 5-mile walk meandering through the town. They are also installed along Main Street in Stowe, so even a walk downtown can become an artistic experience.

The exhibition, which boasts an annual attendance of roughly 70,000 people, will be held from July 11 to October 14, 2015. Visitors to the 24th Annual Helen Day Art Center: Exposed will be able to experience sculpture against the backdrop of our colorful northeastern summer and the vibrant changing leaves of autumn.

Here at Green Mountain Inn, we enjoy a breathtaking view of Helen Day Art Center: Exposed each year. We're located just few minutes walk from the Center, and our guests can enjoy a swim in the pool or a rest on Egyptian linens in between visits to the sculpture path. We offer comfortable proximity to this unique event and to the other activities of downtown Stowe, so book your stay today and get your art fix in this historic destination.
