Silicon Valley Sculpture 2020
The Silicon Valley Sculpture (SVS) fine art fair is the primary fundraiser 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 pieces that draw attention to pressing issues facing the Silicon Valley community, such as privacy, equality, displacement.
This year´s theme is "Past, Present, Progressive." An art walk will guide visitors through sculptures that represent all three ideas, ending at Florence Moore Hall on the Menlo College Campus, where art performances will take place.
