Going Places with Art: Loveland’s Sculpture in the Park Show
Exodus is always on the move for the Colorado community. Once again, we were there for another exciting event. At Exodus, we are enthusiastic about promoting community involvement. While sculptures normally stay still, last weekend over 2,000 pieces by more than 170 artists made their journey to one of the most unique gatherings in the world: a Loveland tradition that continues to generate a great deal of income for the community and an even greater appreciation for beauty and bonding among Colorado residents near and far, Loveland’s Sculpture in the Park Show.
With so much riding on keeping this tradition going strong, organizers called upon the one Colorado based national moving company they could depend on, Exodus Moving and Storage. Exodus movers were there , proud to tackle the logistical obstacles the massive set-up presented.
The Benson Sculpture Garden is the permanent home to a 132 piece collection of outdoor sculptures. The Loveland High Plains Arts Council operates the park year-round as a tranquil get-away, ideal for family strolls and visitor sightseeing.
This year was the 28th anniversary of the Sculpture in the Park Show, and it opened concurrently with the Loveland Sculpture Invitational and Art in the Park. Planners estimated 30,000 combined visitors.
The transformation of a tranquil get away into an international showcase in a short time takes both expertise and precision in addition to the muscle to get it done. Hundreds of pedestals needed to be in place, on time, so the displays would have a leg to stand on. Huge tents needed to go up, delivery routes needed to be established, and all of this had to be done around walkways that saw traffic increase by a thousand fold.
This was a big project, but Exodus handles moves both big and small with the same level of commitment and to the same level of success. And we just couldn’t get enough. After the show, our guys were back to take it all down and return the garden to the watchful eyes of its residents, no doubt happy to settle down until next year.
