Join Sculp-Tours For Chamber “Ribbon Cutting” Event

Big Barbara
On May 14th, Sculp-Tours will celebrate its official grand opening with a ribbon cutting event to be held at Alden Bridge Shopping Center in front of the “Big Barbara” sculpture at 10:15am. “While Sculp-Tours has been diligently working to build awareness of the sculpture collection for a few months now, we are proud to be an active member of The Woodlands Chamber of Commerce,” says Tony Motto, owner of Sculp-Tours. The choice to meet at the “Big Barbara” installation is unique indeed. Placed in the Alden Bridge Shopping Center in 1998, this artwork has produced many varied conversations. But isn’t that what art should do? What better way to build a sense of community than to provide opportunities for people to communicate with each other their feelings about how art effects them. It’s not important whether people like it or not visually, but what “feelings” does it produce and sharing those feelings with someone else is when positive growth happens.

The sculpture was designed by Peter Reginato, formally a Texan but now resides in New York, and there is a smaller maquette of this artwork that resides in the Woodlands Development Company offices. “There is an interesting story about how this sculpture got its name,” states Motto, “but you’ll have to come to the ribbon-cutting or sign up for a ‘Sculp-Tour’ to find out!” Please show your support for our wonderful sculpture collection by attending this event at the Alden Bridge Shopping Center on May 14th at 10:15am.
