The Rosen Sculpture Competition & Exhibition is a national, juried competition presented annually by the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. To celebrate the 32nd anniversary of this inspiring installation, join competition jurors Daniel T. Beck and Ian Henderson on an educational outdoor tour of the ten selected pieces from this year’s competition. The tour concludes at the Schaefer Center with an awards reception. In addition to the ten sculptures, two additional works of sculpture will be installed- one at Appalachian House and the other at the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum (BRAHM).

The Rosen Sculpture Walk will take place rain or shine. In the event of heavy rain, a presentation including images of the sculptures will be held indoors at the Schaefer Center.
