Welcome To West Stockbridge: Turn Park Art Space Opens

Amy Krzanik reports from West Stockbridge. Turn Park Art Space, a contemporary sculpture park and community gathering spot, opened to a large and eager crowd on Sunday, May 14. The Park’s architects and founders spoke about the conception of the site, about its construction, and about plans for its future growth and myriad uses. Newly elected West Stockbridge Selectman Bernie Fallon formally welcomed the project’s team to town. In what had been (and continued to be) a very rainy spot of weather for the region, the sun shone brightly down on Turn Park for the length of the opening event, allowing for a true celebratory mood. Both young and old came to walk the paths, as well as to veer off into the fields for pop-up “happenings” – stories, songs and skits from Brooklyn’s Floating Tower. Read RI’s recent article about Turn Park Art Space.
