The College of the Arts at Kennesaw State University will present “On the Grounds II: A Sculpture Exhibition and Outdoor Installations” in the Fine Arts Gallery‚ June 15−22. The exhibition will feature works by four emerging Atlanta sculptors: Andree Paerels‚ Fernando D’Astoli‚ Keith Smith and Chris Wilson.

These four sculptors have been selected to create outdoor sculptures that will be displayed on the grounds of the university for two years. The exhibition will showcase their plans for these works‚ which will be installed later this summer. They will discuss their works at the opening reception in the gallery‚ 7−9 p.m. on June 15.

“On the Grounds” is a long−range project sponsored by the student Visual Arts Committee to enhance the university's landscape and provide opportunities for sculptors to show their work in a beautiful outdoor setting. A previous “On the Grounds” commission resulted in the permanent installation of a bronze sculpture by David Landis surrounded by 12 smaller bronze sculptures created by KSU student artists.
