24th Annual North Bennington Outdoor Sculpture Show NBOSS 2021
Now in its 24th year, the North Bennington Outdoor Sculpture Show (NBOSS) is the longest running outdoor sculpture exhibition in Southern Vermont. From June 19th to November 7th, large-scale outdoor works will be featured throughout the historic village of North Bennington, at the Hiland Hall Gardens, and on the 10-acre campus of Bennington Museum in Old Bennington. This exhibition is a must-see addition to the regional art trail that connects Southern Vermont cultural destinations such as Bennington Museum, Bennington College and the Southern Vermont Arts Center with MassMoca, The Clark Art Institute, Williams College Museum of Art, Art Omi, Chesterwood, and The Mount.
For the 9th year in a row, local artist Joe Chirchirillo will curate this premier cultural event, and for the 2nd consecutive year, he will be joined by Jamie Franklin at Bennington Museum. For the summer and fall of 2021, the team has brought together over 50 internationally recognized and emerging artists from the surrounding area with their works split between the two locations: 45 pieces in North Bennington (including 4 pieces at the Hiland Hall Gardens), and 26 pieces at Bennington Museum. These creations can be enjoyed at no cost and at the viewer’s convenience. Sculptures are available for purchase, and maps are available on-site.
