SCULPTURE PARK WESENBERG
Künstler Bei Wu and the Peter Wilmot Thompson Stiftung will open Sculpture Park Wesenberg on 25th June, 2016.
The inaugural exhibition will show 23 large sculptures installed in the surrounding forest with more than 60 smaller ones in the adjoining exhibition galleries.
The exhibition is committed to the cultural exchange of fine arts between Australian and German artists.
The Sculpture Park Wesenberg, on beautiful Weissensee (White Lake or Bei Wu), in the Mecklenburg lake district, envisions an artist colony between the three towns of Neustrelitz, Mirow and Wesenberg.
Situated at the southern entrance of the Müritz National Park, the Sculpture Park Wesenberg and its associated exhibition areas will be open to the public free of admission.
