Ravenswood Sketch by Richard Metz
Please help us realize this project | Donations are tax deductible


In a wood, behind a wall, a magical world awaits. Come see and be part of the magic at Abington Art Center on June 9th from 5-8pm for the reopening of our Sculpture Park. Immerse yourself in Ravenswood, an ephemeral painted tree installation by Richard Metz, which explores storytelling inspired by European fairy tales. Let yourself be caught in the spell of over 40 trees transformed by bold, enchanting designs.

Using non-toxic handmade pigments and eggs, Metz will transform our forest into an immersive and visual journey. Drawing inspiration from the Grimm brothers and Hans Christian Anderson era stories, the journey through our forest will begin as dark and scary. As the viewer moves further into the woods, the narrative will transition into one of great energy and light. Further along the path, our woods will become darker again, as soft evening colors emerge. The dark woods will no longer pose a threat, as we confront the darkness in the artwork and in ourselves.

To learn more about this year-long revitalization process visit the Community Gallery where Ravenswood planning and evidence of the installation will be on view from June 9 – July 24
