A collector brought to our attention a surprise sculpture hike in southern New Hampshire and we took a July morning to explore. The Andres Institute of Art, located in Brookline, NH, is a unique place combining art, education, technology and the outdoors. The collected effort of many has created a 140 acre sculpture park hugging the side of Bear Mountain. There is an interesting history at their website.
Winding, wooded trails are open to the public although I recommend going to their website and downloading the map because there were none available onsite. Here are several of the many photographs David and I took as we hiked around the grounds which included an old quarry.
The sculptures were created in the studio on the mountain during sculpture symposiums. I expect many used the local rock resources.
I have uploaded additional photos of other sculptures on our Flickr site here. If you are ever visiting that corner of New England stop and enjoy the hike!
