Amazingly Artful Mini Golf Course

♠ Posted by ArtMuse at 9:24 AM


I read this in last Thursdays NY Times home section.  The artist is Bruce Stillman, who made his living as a popular sculptor in the 1990's.  Over the past 20 years he has been creating one of the country's most interesting mini-golf courses called Big Stone nearby Minneapolis Minn.

The golf course takes it's inspiration from various environmental and found object artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and Robert Smithson. The golf course itself looks a bit surreal, and I thought it might make a great for some great art lessons.  Students can design their own mini-golf courses or fantasy landscapes.  The article is definitely worth checking out.
