Sculpture Walk XI - Mike Roig

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Kingsport Public Library
Auditorium
Sculpture Walk XI takes on a new form with sculpture talks and hands on sculpture workshops. Rolling out as a series, the sculptures for Sculpture Walk XI will be installed separately over several months. The first of which will be installed on September 28.  The Library is proud to be partnering with Engage Kingsport to provide a location - the library's auditorium - for the sculpture talks.

The artist for the first two sculptures of the walk is Mike Roig. Mike’s pieces are often kinetic - moving effortlessly with the wind, providing great interest. They are expertly wrought in stainless, industrial steel and other durable materials. Mike will install two pieces on Friday, September 28. ‘Moondance’ will be installed in the Ridgefields Circle and ‘Aerial’ will be installed in Downtown Kingsport. Mike lives and works in Carrboro, NC where he and his wife, author-artist Clay Carmichael, maintain the Heartworks Studio.

On Friday, September 28 the Office of Cultural Arts invites the public to a reception and talk with artist Mike Roig. The reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the talk will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the Kingsport Public Library - after 5:30, please enter from the Shelby Street parking lot.

For more information, please visit EngageKingsport.com, or call 423-392-8414. For more information on Mike Roig, visit www.mikeroig.com.
