Sculpture Fields is always a memorable and remarkable experience no matter what season you visit. The park’s moods are fantastically mercurial.
But when the park comes alive with a special event, it’s a true celebration with amazing music, tasty fare from food trucks, beer and liquor tents, playful kid activities and other stunning entertainment.

Spring in the Park
April 07 - Saturday
11am - 10pm
It’s a day of family fun on the Southside when Sculpture Fields celebrates its second anniversary with Spring in the Park. Enjoy live music, picnic from fun food trucks, visit the beer tent, experience artists creating their paintings and drawings outdoors, check out the new children’s area and finish off the day with witnessing the awe-inspiring sculpture burn of a 30-foot wooden structure by artist Andrew Nigh when he sets his creation ablaze.
Andrew Nigh has been designing and creating his pyrokinetic outdoor sculptures for more than 15 years. Each sculpture is designed to inspire emotional interaction with the viewer.
The monumental wood sculpture Nigh is creating for this year’s Spring in the Park is titled Aster Origamus. It will have five structural angled stanchions, with petals protruding from each one. The towering 30-foot sculpture will come to life as the sculpture is lit. The petals will unfold as the fire reaches each one, as if they are blossoming. At the same time other various flame-enhancing effects will provide kinetic movement.
