ABOUT

The Silicon Valley Sculpture (SVS) fine art fair is the main production for Menlo Park Public Art (MPPA), a nonprofit organization with the goal of defining Silicon Valley through public art.  

 

By exhibiting large-scale sculptures in the heart of Silicon Valley, we are increasing access to art in an area where the importance of technology has often surpassed the recognition of other forms of culture. 

 

In addition to large-scale fine art sculptures with a narrative exhibited in a natural environment, the event will include performance art that draws attention to pressing issues facing the Silicon Valley community, such as privacy, equality, displacement. 

 

This year´s theme is "Shifting Perspectives." An art walk will guide visitors through sculptures that represent our theme throughout the campus.  

 

My profound gratitude goes to the Menlo College community for providing us with a stunning, minimalist environment to showcase these artworks in grand style.

Dr. Katharina Powers, Menlo Park Public Art

Country or State or City, and what you specifically like about it: 

Marseille - an ancient port city founded by the Phoenicians on the edge of what can be thought of as the liquid continent, the Mediterranean sea.  All people who live around this body of water have a kinship brought by the climate and a shared history.  It is a place where I feel I am a part of a continuum - a flow that that has existed well before our own civilization began.
