WAA Sculpture Walk Opening Weekend Recap

On July 14th, the Washington Art Association & Gallery celebrated the opening of their incredible outdoor sculpture exhibit. Guests from far and wide, and from around the corner as well, came to tour and interact with the remarkable sculptures dramatically sited within the lovely setting of Washington Depot. The opening afternoon featured special activities for children and families, artist talks, and amazing performances by the highly acclaimed dance company MOMIX. The Explore Washington CT team was on hand to capture the excitement during the festivities. Check out our photos and brief video below for a recap. Visit WAA Sculpture Walk this summer and fall – and enjoy this unique experience yourself!
