Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust and The Trustees of Reservations will host a closing celebration for  “The River Project: Sculpture at Slocum’s River Reserve” outdoor sculpture exhibit.  The free public event will take place on Saturday, May 18, from 4 to 9 p.m.  This celebration will feature a guided walk with the artists, entertainment by the Spindle Rock River Rats, storyteller Toby Dills, speakers, music and a bonfire. Bring your own picnic, blanket or chairs.

The event begins with a guided walk at 4:30 pm that visits each of the sculptures. The artists will talk about their work and allow the public one last chance to see these sculptures installed. The six sculptures were created and installed in May 2012 by six artists: Mimi Frank, Elizabeth Dooher, Ron Rudnicki, Lasse Antonsen, Danielle Krcmar, and Steve Whittlesey.

The 50-acre Slocum’s River Reserve is located on Horseneck Road in South Dartmouth, 1 mile south of Russell’s Mills Village. It has two miles of trails and is open to the public for free, sunrise to sunset, year-round.
