Flipping One Over a Bush
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Artist reception and screening of a short documentary film celebrating NBOSS’ past, present, and future, and a live performance by John Umphlett, Flipping One Over a Bush, first performed 22 years ago at the 3rd NBOSS in 2000.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the North Bennington Outdoor Sculpture Show. Originally known as the North Bennington Art Park, the exhibition debuted in 1998 on the lawn in front of what was then Joe McGovern’s masonry shop, adjacent to the post office, in the village of North Bennington. Over the last 25 years NBOSS (pronounced “N”-Boss), as it is now lovingly known, has become one of the region’s premiere arts events of the summer/fall season, featuring work by some of the best artists from the Bennington area, the state of Vermont, and throughout the northeast region. In addition to sculptures by over 40 artists scattered throughout the village of North Bennington, an additional 25+ artists will display their work on our beautiful 10-acre property in Old Bennington for the third consecutive year, including many who have contributed to NBOSS since the exhibition’s early years.
This event will take place at the Bennington Museum on the date posted; all are welcome. The performance will happen at the beginning of the event.
