SHIPPENSBURG, Pa — The sculpture classes went outside the classroom this semester to enhance the Shippensburg section of the Rail Trail.

They partnered with the “Rails to Trails” Organization to create environmental sculptures.

These sculptures include using materials around an old drainage pipe to create art and using rocks and broken down trees along the trail.

The class was inspired by Andy Goldworthy one of the most famous environmental artists, who has done work all around the world.

This is not the first time the sculpture classes have worked in nature, in previous years they have worked in the local mountains and in state lands.

Although these sculptures are only temporary, sculpture professor, Steven Dolbin hopes to expand these projects along the trail and create benches carved from the tress and bike racks.
