Art In the Orchard, open all day from August 13 until Thanksgiving, 2016, is a walking sculpture trail which winds through our fruit gardens. This year's exhibition is an Alumni Encore which features works by sculptors who were selected by the jury in previous biennials. The self-guided trail is about a half-mile long. A walk through the labyrinth adds about a quarter mile.
Regarding Price: To clear up any confusion. You are allowed to make a voluntary donation to AiO at the trailhead. The sign suggests $5 per person or $20 per group or family. But your donation is voluntary and walking the sculpture trail is free. People who can should give more
The trail is a great destination for a family visit. Walking in the good air, high-minded sculpture, exceptional views, pick-your-own apples. Bring your friends from out-of-town and show them how we roll in the Happy Valley. Many people make an afternoon of it, bringing a picnic basket, lounging among the trees.
There are many ways to work with Art In the Orchard. The most important thing is to attend and enjoy the remarkable and unique set and setting. Many people are involved at many levels including artists, planners, guides, parkers, coordinators, groundskeepers, fund raisers and spokespersons. Here is a link to the list of volunteer positions.
The very best part of this show is the act of doing fun and meaningful things with all kinds of people for a good reason. Please do consider picking up some shifts on free days! We have some fun and get 'er done here on the farm.
