As society emerges from the restrictions and isolation of the pandemic, the Bristol Art Museum opens to the public with an exhibit of sculptures from six different artists, Sense of Place, on view from Friday, May 14 to Sunday, July 18. The Museum, located at 10 Wardwell Street in Bristol, is open Thursdays to Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m.
 
Sense of Place is an exhibit offering the Museum visitor an opportunity to connect both physically and conceptually with art. Standing before each sculptors’ tangible presence creates a relational exchange between artwork and viewer, and fosters an implied interpersonal connection, dissolving physical boundaries. Visitors will be psychologically and physically engaged with the sculptures while being encouraged to transcend the palpable area and experience an imagined place.
 
“The pandemic has presented us with the opportunity to organize an exhibit recognizing that location, or place, is a reminder of community,” said Mary Dondero, Curator. “As we slowly emerge from isolation and return to our community, sculpture provides a sense of space and location. Sculpture also provides a sense of solidity; it is grounded, whether on a pedestal or mounted on a wall. Sense of Place is indirectly about the Museum itself - a place for visitors to see new contemporary art.”
