BECKLEY, W.Va. -- On May 2, the Tamarack Foundation dedicated its first sculpture by Mark Schwenk in the Sculptural Tree Garden on the grounds of Tamarack.
The foundation is a statewide organization providing support and economic development opportunities to West Virginia's artisan entrepreneurs. The three-phase public art project will raise awareness of the foundation and create a permanent sculptural garden supported by Tribute Gifts.
"These gifts are commemorative gifts that have been made in honor of or in memory of a person who the donor wants to acknowledge in a special way," said Sally Barton, executive director. "The project goal of $120,000 will enable the artists associated with the Foundation the opportunity to work with fellow artisans, art teachers and children statewide to create a meditation sculptural garden at one of our state's most visited tourism sites.
