    Rhythms of Stone Lecture & Workshop

    In this remarkable new series, DJ Garrity, the former Sculptor-In-Residence at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, will explore the aesthetic and creative process of stone sculpting.

    Lecture on Thursday:
    In his Rhythms of Stone Lecture, Garrity will present a visual illustration derived from his Nobel Laureate Series of portraits in stone and his book of the same title. He will discuss the historical background of the ‘process aesthetic’ from European Masters to the colossal sculpture of the American West.

    Workshop Saturday through Monday:
    Garrity developed this garden sculpture workshop as a hands-on interpretive training program in collaboration with the National Park Service of America. He will lead participants with no previous experience through a creative process that uses traditional hand tools to create unique garden sculptures in stone. The program has been well received by gardeners, artists and the lifelong learning community.
