  The Mount in Lenox, MA welcomes 40,000 visitors during its season from May 3-October 31. It is a destination point for lovers of Edith Wharton’s writing, historical mansion, exquisite gardens, and now lovers of contemporary sculpture.

Common Ground is an exhibition of contemporary outdoor sculptures currently on display at The Mount and presented in partnership with SculptureNow. In this segment we take a tour of the exhibition with SculptureNow Director, Ann Jon. We also check in with Susan Wissler, the Executive Director of The Mount.

  Two notes:
There are 25 sculptures in the exhibition and we do not visit them all in this interview.

SculptureNow also offers workshops to students in the public schools of the Berkshires. More information is available on their website.
