The Oliver Art Center is pleased to be part of the international art exhibition “Terrain Biennial 2023”, hosting an original sculpture installment by Manistee artist Nat Rosales. Nat’s work, The Echo Effect will be on display on the grounds of the Oliver Art Center located at 132 Coast Guard Rd., Frankfort, from October 1 through November 15.
Terrain Biennial is a grassroots public art festival that began in Oak Park, Illinois in 2013 and has since spread across the Midwest, throughout the United States and overseas. Artists and curators collaborate with host sites to produce public art installations (think sculptures, paintings, projections, flags and more) which are then displayed outside homes, art centers and businesses 24/7 for anyone in the community to discover.
The artwork located at the Oliver Art Center is one of more than 200 Terrain Biennial projects worldwide and one of 13 Michigan sites stretching from Ludington to Frankfort with projects in Manistee, Onekama and Kaleva.
