Wilmington Renaissance Corporation and Creative District Wilmington will dedicate the 7th Street Arts Bridge Sculpture Garden, “InTreeGuing” by Andre Reyneard, on Oct. 7 at 5:30 p.m. at West Seventh and North Tatnall streets in Wilmington’s Creative District. Council President Theo Gregory, Councilwoman Hanifa Shabazz and Poet Laureate Nnamdi Chukwuocha will be among the guests to speak at the event. The dedication will be followed by an evening of entertainment and a celebration of the arts at The iNSPIRE Lot, located at 215-219 W. Seventh Street between Orange and Tatnall streets.
“It is a pleasure to honor Andre Reyeard for his time and dedication to the production of the Sculpture Garden,” says Carrie W. Gray, managing director of Wilmington Renaissance Corporation. “The installation of ‘InTreeGuing’ brought together neighbors and strangers as they worked side by side to plant this garden. It is another example of how art builds community.” The 7th Street Arts Bridge (7SAB) is the first phase of public art projects in Wilmington’s Creative District. 7SAB is a transformative and unifying project in an area in need of renewal that will connect artists, entrepreneurs and residents to downtown Wilmington. 7SAB will transform this strategic corridor by creating structural, visual, event-driven and spiritual connections between people and places.
“InTreeGuing” Sculpture Garden is at 301 W. Seventh St., adjacent to The iNSPIRE Lot, Creative District Wilmington’s open space to host creatively inspired events. The iNSPIRE Lot Series, is held from 5:30–8 p.m. in conjunction with Wilmington’s First Friday Art Loop.
