On July 20, 2022, sculptor Barbara Fletcher came to the Burlington Sculpture Park and installed her work, Lumen, with much help from her friend Ron Weed, who also built the graceful stand on which Lumen sits.
Lumen is Barbara’s first work in metal, which she plans to use more. She is a mixed media sculptor, having used a wide variety of materials over her long career.
Visit her website to see many of her installations, smaller works, and graphic work.
Watch the video below to hear Barbara tell about her work and the creation of Lumen, and below that is a photo gallery from the installati0n.
