Artists from all over the world have contributed to the site. Pictures tell the story but it's fascinating to view the interpretative work set in a beautiful forest. At... More

This is a lovely spot in what once was a ski area. Now, it's the venue for the exhibition of the Bridges and Connections International Sculpture symposium whereby artists come to the site for a 3-week stint to create sculpture and mingle with the locals who sponsor their stay. The result is incredibly beautiful art hidden amongst the natural backdrop... More

Nice hike with art. We enjoy hiking and viewing the different art sculptures. Free. Right off 13. Interesting art. Fun to come upon the installations in the woods.

We spent a few hours hiking through the NH woods and quarries while viewing too many beautiful and interesting sculptures to count. The trails range from easy to somewhat challenging and many of the views are magnificent. A wonderful way to spend some time outdoors, getting exercise and exposure to the arts!

Over 100 sculptures in stone, metal, and wood distributed along natural hiking trails on the side of Bear Mountain. The works were designed and fashioned by artists from all over the world; Andres invites 4 sculptors to come each year for a season; they leave a work that was inspired by their NH experience.

This is such a fun place to take a hike. There are all sorts of trails meandering through the woods with sculptures interspersed throughout. Nature and art together. Kids can enjoy the walk and actually not get scolded for touching the artwork.

This place has been on my to do list for many years. There are 72 unique and inspiring sculptures set along the hiking trails of the 140 acre Andres Institute of Art. These sculptures are done on site by artists from around the world. There are four new sculptures coming this fall. The parking lot is located at the foot... More

A cousin knows the owner and art director, so she took me to see this in '14. Just amazing. Artists from around the world visit and are invited to make anything they desire out of stone and/or steel, then it's placed somewhere on the 140 acres of Bear Mountain. There are about 75 sculptures, placed along various hiking trails. Some... More

This is a really cool place to see great sculptures and get in some exercise at the same time. We found wild blueberries on the trails which is an added bonus!
