Dubbed “BOBA: Beginning of Bolted Art,” the biennial sculpture reception will be held Friday, Feb. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Tuscawilla Art Park, located at 213 NE Fifth St.

Ticketholders will have the opportunity for docent tours of the 10 new sculptures, complete with culinary delights created by La Casella catering. Guests will enjoy live entertainment featuring Cello Fury and a special performance by West Port High School’s orchestra and choir. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at www.ocalafl.org/culturalarts.

The Biennial Ocala Outdoor Sculpture competition, currently in its fifth year, will feature artists from across North America. A selection jury, comprised of local community and art organization representatives, selected 10 sculptures to advance in the competition and travel to Tuscawilla Park and the Tuscawilla Art Park for a 22-month exhibit that spans across 45-acres of green space in downtown Ocala.

The City of Ocala Cultural Arts creates opportunities for public art to transform ordinary spaces into destinations. The goal of the Art in City Spaces program is to foster creativity, discovery and thoughtfulness among Ocala’s citizens and visitors.
