Workshop: Art for Children
Old handed professionals are organizing a Workshop: Art for Children (registration needed).
IN THE STIFT OBERNKIRCHEN
Art collectors and lovers may look forward to the ArtShopping. Different smaller works made by the artists attending the Symposium will be shown on a sales exhibition. There should be interesting objects for any taste and price levelas dabei sein.
On the Way
Criss-crossing Obernkirchen and even into the Bückeberg Mountain you can enjoy the Sculpture-Path, which is continuously changed and extended, - also with every new symposium refreshing this special exhibition bringing new items.
Especially appealing: The sculptures are certainly reviving in the midst of town and nature.
At the Origin
Completing the path you will be rewarded. In the Obernkirchen Sandstone Quarry, on the crest of the “Bückeberg” you can look deeply into the geology of the particular stone. Well developed paths will bring you to a plateau where you can experience the exceptional footprints of cretaceous dinosaurs.
In the art cafe, Trafohaus, directly on the church square, watching the activities you may enjoy a cup of coffee, a piece of cake, cool drinks, local beer as well as biological vines..
Museum of Mining and Town History
The consciousness of tradition has always been an incitement of the International Obernkirchen Sculptor Symposium.
Today modern - tomorrow already history.
The Museum of Mining and Town History is sited at the Church Square. Among others the museum tells you the story about the Obernkirchen Sandstone, definitely with correlation to the symposium: The stone mason guild did not only use to educate stone masons but also stone sculptors.
