Sculpture Installation at the Arboretum

By Wilma Jozwiak

If you are a devo­tee of Lan­dis’ Full Moon Con­cert series, you may have heard the name Sam Bates. Sam was one of the found­ing mem­bers of the Lan­dis Arts and Enter­tain­ment Com­mit­tee, and a big rea­son for the resur­gence of musi­cal per­for­mances at the Arbore­tum. Not only does Sam cut a mean fig­ure groov­ing out to live music on the deck of the Meet­ing House, but he is also a local mul­ti­me­dia artist. He is known pro­fes­sion­al­ly as Samuel E and has sculp­tures on dis­play in coun­tries around the world. 

Dur­ing the month of August, Sam installed an exhib­it of his large-scale sculp­tures at the Lan­dis Arbore­tum. We are very for­tu­nate to have these nev­er before exhib­it­ed works on our grounds for our vis­i­tors to enjoy. Both sculp­tures are part of Sam’s Rusty Met­al Series. 

The sculp­ture August, cre­at­ed in 2009, is sit­ed in the field below the Barn. The sculp­ture All There is To Be is sit­ed along the dri­ve into the Meet­ing House. For more infor­ma­tion on Samuel E and his work, vis­it our web­site at www​.lan​dis​ar​bore​tum​.org or Sam’s site at www​.samuele​gallery​.com.
