New Hope Arts

(NEW HOPE, PA) -- The New Hope Arts Center: New Hope Arts is expanding the Outdoor Sculpture Project celebrating 20 years of their commitment to public art. For the 20th anniversary the renamed Public Sculpture Program, is on the move. The latest installation, Harry Gordon’s Axis Mundi, "landed" on Sunday, March 5, hosted by First National Bank & Trust Co. of Newtown’s Solebury branch at 408 Lower York Rd., New Hope.

The massive stone and bronze artwork was installed by Gordon Sculpture, L.L.Cof Lambertville with a second larger crane provided by Andrew Logan of Sky Boom Service L.L.C. of Brooklyn, NY.

Public sculpture in New Hope begun in 2003 with an initiative by New Hope Art's founder Robin Larsen and other supportive New Hope residents, is distinguished as one of the first public art programs in the region. New Hope Arts administers the program, chaired and supported by Pamm Kerr, New Hope resident. Additional placements and site sponsorships are available.

New Hope Arts (NHA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to furthering New Hope’s heritage as a thriving nucleus for various mediums of art and artists. NHA serves an integral role in showcasing contemporary artists’ work within New Hope and Lambertville and throughout the Delaware Valley. New Hope Arts supports artists by fostering opportunities to exhibit, providing space to create, collaborate, and present while offering residents and visitors access to a vibrant array of visual, performing, and literary arts. NHA further provides a welcoming forum to emerging artists who would otherwise not have access to a professional exhibition setting while introducing new audiences to their work. Annually, NHA organizes up to eight significant exhibitions, including sculpture, works in wood, painting, photography, fine artisan crafts, and new media installations. Its individual donors, Board Members and foundations, and community members provide the support necessary to offer such programs and events. Recognition of NHA’s service to the arts includes funding from The PNC Foundation Arts Alive program, the Community and Economic Development Grant from the State of PA, and The Bucks County Visitors Bureau. Executive Director Carol Cruickshanks keeps founder Robin Larsen’s vision alive, ever-evolving, and ever-elevating since New Hope Arts conception in 2002.

Inspiring documentary Along the Rail premieres at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival!

Art can portray many things and occupy many mediums. Some artists utilize subjects such as cities, animals, and people. For Craig Wallace Dale, this choice of subject has ranged over the years and currently rests with railroad track graffiti. Jonathan Harkel’s Along the Rail displays and honors this longer-than-three-decade journey.
