MSA Select – Indoor Exhibition
MSA partnered with the City of Lexington’s Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center to present a juried exhibition of work by MSA professional members. This exhibit sought to foster MSA’s mission to advance the creation and awareness of sculpture in its many and varied forms and promote a supportive environment for sculpture and sculptors. The Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center is an arts and entertainment center located in the heart of Lexington. The Center offers high-quality theater, dance, music, visual and new media arts.
She is an interdisciplinary artist combining sculptural processes and methods with contemporary approaches through site specific installations, community events and large earthworks. Her sculpture has been exhibited internationally at venues including the Minnesota Museum of American Art, Phipps Center for Art, Wis., Franconia Sculpture Park, Minn., and the Coalbrookdale Historic Site, Telford, England.
Melanie returned to her hometown of Frankfort, Ky. in 2008 to begin building Josephine Sculpture Park, a 26-acre park that operates as a nonprofit arts organization and provides unique, daily opportunities for the public to interact with artwork and the artists who create it. JSP provides community arts education while conserving Kentucky’s native, rural landscape. As founder and artistic director, she manages exhibitions, programming, fundraising, events and advertising for JSP. It is free and open 365 days per year from dawn until dusk.
