'Exposed.' stays close to home -- Caleigh Cross for Stowe Reporter

With significant support from the Stowe community, the outdoor sculpture exhibition Exposed. will be celebrating it’s 28th year this summer, opening on Saturday July 20th. 
Building on a tradition of excellence, this year’s exhibition will feature nationally renowned sculptors Tom Fruin and David Stromeyer. The exhibition will be a concentrated celebration on the property of the Helen Day Art Center, as the town undergoes renovation and construction throughout the village and recreation path where Exposed has existed in previous years. 
The Opening Festival is Saturday, July 20th at 4:00p.m. We will meet at the Art Center for short talks by David Stromeyer and Tom Fruin’s NYC assistant at their pieces, while enjoying a complimentary wine garden, live music by Lesley Grant, Tacos by Caja Madera, ice cream compliments of Mountain View Snack Bar: all free and open to the public.
Tom Fruin
Tom Fruin (born 1974, Los Angeles) is a contemporary American sculptor. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York City. Fruin graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a BA in 1996.  Known for his large scale installations, Fruin most commonly uses steel and highly colored plexiglass to create monumental sculptures referencing local building structures. He describes his drive to make art that is publicly accessible, as well as sustainable by working with reclaimed materials and alternative energy. Fruin's largest installation to date, the Watertower series, is installed on multiple rooftops across New York City and around the country. Other large scale work has been exhibited in public plazas in Prague, Vienna, Copenhagen, South Korea, and throughout the United States.
David Stromeyer
In 1970, David Stromeyer bought a two hundred acre former dairy farm at the foothills of the Cold Hollow Mountains in Enosburg, Vermont. Inspired by the contours of meadows, woods, and mountains he devoted his efforts to creating and siting large scale sculpture in this natural setting.  
While he has completed sculptures for universities, corporations, and state and local municipalities across the US, his vision has evolved to preserving the Vermont land and presenting to the public examples from his fifty year career. In 2014, David and his wife, Sarah, launched "Cold Hollow Sculpture Park" offering the public an admission-free, immersive art experience as well as multi-disciplinary programming. Recently, the success of this venture has prompted them to create a nonprofit  foundation to perpetuate their vision. 
Self-guided cell phone audio tours and this website cohesively work to create a more accessible exhibition, engaging the anticipated 75,000+ visitors.
