She said he knows all the trails and sculptures, and he has navigated visiting artists through the trails. Szok has taken care of the outdoor area with so much pride that she says she feels like it’s her mountain. “It is a wonderful blend of nature and man-made art,” Szok said, “a wonderful balance that we try to keep.” She said she loves all the sculptures. “When I started, it was seven sculptures, and now it is 60,” Szok said. “Andres has something for everyone to love and everyone to hate.” Weidman is a sculptor who loves art of the threedimensional variety because it allows so many more views. Weidman said each person has his or her own unique world view. And with sculpture, the art can be viewed with from every possible angle, allowing even more interpretations. He said people will see things differently, and the institute allows artists who visit to create whatever they want. Szok says there are two types of artists who create for the collection: Those who have a set idea of what they’ll create and those who walk the grounds and get inspired by a location and then get an idea. She says the latter normally walk away much happier in the end. “The only person they have to answer to is themselves,” Szok said. Montroy isn’t coming to create a piece of work to add to the collection. He wants to be the guide for people to start their own collection.
