Bernheim’s Arts in Nature Program is designed to inspire and develop even deeper connections with nature and the public opening of our newest sculpture, Earth Measure will do that in a magnificent way. You are invited to join us for the official public opening on Thursday, October 17 at 10:00 a.m. as Louisville sculptor, Matt Weir, presents his completed work.
Weir was commissioned three years ago to create a sculpture in honor of Barry Bingham Jr., the Former publisher of the Louisville Courier-Journal and Louisville Times and guided the publications to win three Pulitzer Prizes. Bingham was an avid environmentalist, photographer, supporter, and fund-raiser for Bernheim, who served on the Bernheim Board of Trustees from 1970-2006.
Instead of designing a traditional sculptural tribute, Weir conducted extensive research to discover the principles that were important to both Barry Bingham Jr. and to Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest. The result, an educational, interactive and multi-dimensional limestone earthwork that must be experienced to be appreciated.
