This year they got it right. The 2013 installment of Art in the Garden at Reeves-Reed Arboretum features the work of sculptor Tom Holmes. The dozen or so works are placed throughout the gardens and to see them all is to also see the garden in a new way.
An early morning walk revealed thoughtful placement of sometimes monumental work that had a direct relationship to nature. Mr. Holmes’ work and the individual placement throughout the arboretum challenges the viewer to think not only about the power of art in the landscape, but how relationships between art and nature can be formed.
The Reeves-Reed Arboretum is located on Hobart Avenue in Summit, NJ and is open dawn till dusk. A post on a previous year’s installation can be found here.
