InLiquid presents Sculpture in the Glen II: an immersive outdoor sculpture garden introducing over two dozen new works by local sculptors into the lush landscape of the glen, a 4-acre parcel along Mill Creek in Gladwyne. On view throughout the month of October, this sculpture garden will also be in celebration of InLiquid’s 21st anniversary. To celebrate, there was a private, socially distanced, vernissage on October 3 and 4, 2020, In-kind sponsorship for the vernissage has been provided by brands such as Moët Chandon, Commonwealth Ciders, and Philadelphia Brewing Company.
The sculpture garden features artworks in both scales of intricate transition to large installations by artists Alex Bard, Kenn Brown, Charles Burch, Brent Crothers, Brian David Dennis, Charles Emlen, Lisa Fedon, Joshua Koffman, Leslie Matthews, Caitlin McCormack, Katia McGuirk, Michael Morgan, Amy Orr, John Parker, Christopher Poehlmann, Rikki Morley
Saunders, Peter Slavin, Stan Smokler, Jonathan Stemler, Vicki Vinton, Hannah Vogel, and Roger Wing. The sculpture garden has scheduled hours for the general public to view, experience, and celebrate the art. Sculpture in the Glen invites those who visit to step back from their computers and get back to nature where they can experience more than 25 sculptures intended to inspire and awe.

View a vibrant embrace of nature and the cycle of life with Antonio Fink’s One with Nature/Fertility. Sculptures ranging from traditional themes like Joshua Koffman’s Torso Femina –showing the beauty found in the human form–to contemporary works with powerful messaging like Vicki Vinton’s Stand with Presence –a bright red, powder-coated, akimbo-stance female symbol celebrating overall strength and unapologetic fervor–there is something for everyone to fuel their souls.
