How the Pathway came to be....
Exhibiting Bergen Rocks in Olds is a concept the Town had been developing over a number of years, refining it to fit within our plans for growth and development. The Bergen Rocks originated from International Sculpture Symposiums held throughout the summers of 2008 to 2010.
Professional sculptors from around the world came to stay and create sculptures at Morton Burke’s farm near Bergen, Alberta.
The intention was to exhibit Bergen Rocks sculptures in Olds, extending the vibrant culture of the Olds Community in a high profile area for both residents and visitors to enjoy.
Town Staff worked with the curator of Bergen Rocks on what pieces would be available to us while maintaining an exhibit at the Bergen site.
The intention of exhibiting Bergen Rocks sculptures in Olds is to extend the vibrant art culture of the Olds community in a high profile area for local residents and visitors to enjoy. The Highway 27 Sculpture Pathway will draw positive attention to the Olds community.
