Belvoir "3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw" Sculpture Trail
Sculpture Symposium 2011
A sculpture symposium in the UK took place during the Spring of 2011 in Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir.
At the unveiling of the resulting sculpture trail on Saturday 30 April, Lorna Green gave the following speech:
"The 3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw Sculpture Trail is the outcome of fellow sculptor Laury Dizengremel's extensive participations in sculpture symposia in Vietnam, China and Honduras, plus organisational arts festival experience in Europe which inspired her to host a sculpture symposium here in the East Midlands.
Her vision: to encourage and inspire art students at an early stage of their careers and to acquire professionalism in creating large scale works in the landscape. During this Easter 2011 academic break, Laury has advised and mentored art students aged from 14 to 21 plus an experienced ceramic artist who had only ever worked on a small scale previously, guiding them to produce major works which hold their own in the Grantham Canal environment. In addition, two experienced artists (myself and Denise Sowden) were invited to contribute to the Trail and a tremendous amount of primary school and high school pupils were engaged via school workshops held throughout the area, producing not only small artworks within each school but also two collaborative works for the Trail.
This, however, is only the beginning. Laury's aim is to expand and develop the Trail as is the normal overseas by extending her work with students as well as incorporating further works by professional sculptors, to create a centre of learning with a focus on sustainability within the vale of Belvoir.
She has the energy, the vision and the aspirations as well as perfect facilities thanks to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland - the land, the working areas, the courtyard and stables and the amazing contributions of a local community who rose to the challenge.
In time the 3Rs could become a world-class sculpture trail."
