Story Mill Community Park Hosts Award-Winning Artwork

     The Trust for Public Land’s Story Mill Community Park is now a temporary home for an award-winning art piece named the Town Enclosure Pavilion, which comes to Bozeman from Jackson Hole.

     From the Bozeman Chronicle article: The piece consists of large cross-laminated timber wall panels that form a circle when looking at it from above. When it was set up in Jackson Hole, the project hosted plays, welcomed youth and professional dancers, and hosted poets and spoken word performances. People there also did yoga, drew and watched the stars within the walls of the installation.

     The concept was to create a space where people could gather around a piece of art, according to CLB Architects’ website. The installation has won awards from Americans for the Arts and CODAWORX, and has received national attention.

     OSM construction dug up the installation at the Jackson Hole park and worked to install the piece here on Thursday. The construction company worked with CLB Architects, Gallatin Art Crossing, Jackson Hole Public Art, JH center for the Arts and Story Mill to bring the project to Bozeman.
