New SPACES Sculpture Trail features introduced

Trail has new location, works, phone app with interactive map

Originally developed in 2010, the SPACES Sculpture Trail was conceived to bring public art into a wide variety of spaces in the Huntsville-Madison community.

New works are added every two years, and locations range from Ditto Landing along the Tennessee River to the Alabama A&M campus to the Von Braun Center.

There are now a total of 39 sculptures by 22 artists, from 12 states and Toronto, Canada. 

This year, the Trail in enhanced by the addition of a free app for iPhone and Android. Arts Huntsville says, "The app features the 10 sculpture locations, photos, artist and partner bios, as well as an interactive map that shows users sculptures near their current location."

Arts Huntsville Executive Director Allison Dillon-Jauken hopes that the app will increase the public's exploration of public art. "Public art is taking off in our community, and now with this app anyone can explore these dynamic, whimsical and thought-provoking sculptures straight from their phone. Of course, our real hope is that visitors and locals alike will use the SPACES app to get out and explore our community and the public art enlivening our spaces.”

Ditto Landing is the newest SPACES partner, with three sculptures installed on their riverside greenway. Brandi Quick, executive director of Ditto Landing, says, "The Board, staff and patrons of Ditto Landing are excited to accept the invitation to be a part of the SPACES Sculpture Trail.  As visitors enjoy the three sculptures that have been installed along our riverside greenway, they will also be able to enjoy the fabulous tranquility of the Tennessee River. We are grateful to Arts Huntsville for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful city-wide attraction.”
