Saugerties, NY…..Opus 40, an earthwork sculpture park located in Saugerties, NY, announced today plans to celebrate the close of its 2019 season with a special event on Saturday, August 31 at 4pm. The community event will include a concert by Miss Maybell, a dance, and a barbeque from Grille Wagon, as well as wine/beer from Dutch Ale House; cost is $20 per person.

“We’ve had a remarkable season complete with a wide range of art, music, poetry, theatre, and creative experiences that have attracted people from all walks of life this year. Before everyone returns to the routines that mark September, we thought it would be fun to plan a great party on Labor Day weekend,” said Caroline Crumpacker, Executive Director of Opus 40. 

Crumpacker and Opus 40 founding staff member, Editor/Archivist Tad Richards, as well as other staff and board members this year hosted Max’s New Hat, Roberto Juan Rodriguez, a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar, several educational workshops, and the work of local artists was housed in their gallery: Kenji Fujita, China Jorrin, Faheem Haider and Kahn & Selznick as well as a Saugerties Art Tour showcase were all on exhibit. In September, a Community Day is planned; locals will be admitted free of charge. 

“As summer comes to an end, we hope that schools and tour groups will reach out as needed should they wish to schedule tours of our site. It’s an extraordinarily magical place rich with history and beauty; anyone who has the opportunity should really come check it out,” said Crumpacker.
