Altos del Mar Sculpture Park (ADMSP), a non-profit group in Miami, Florida, founded by sculpture-park expert Gerrit Schulz-Bennewitz and art collector Peter Saile, recently announced that it has reached an agreement with the City of Miami to move forward with plans to build a public sculpture park at the Altos del Mar park site in Miami Beach.
According to the organization’s website, the park will feature “sculptures from internationally famous sculptors from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries that will be exhibited 365 days [a year] at no cost to the public in three naturally divided sculpture ‘rooms.’” The exhibits in the planned rooms, or sections, of the park include “Dunefield,” which will feature contemporary sculpture at the sand dunes against a beach backdrop; the “Maritime Garden,” which will include figurative sculptures and a Butterfly Vivarium; and the “Tree Allées” exhibit, which will feature abstract sculpture. Once complete, the park will serve as a picturesque location for a variety of community and private events.
ADMSP is also planning a series of dinner-party fundraising events toward the end of the year, as well as grand opening fundraising gala.
