A whopping 265 acres of rolling hills, verdant greens, paved pet friendly nature trails, gardens, forests, and seven lakes help make up this wonderful outdoor paradise dedicated to modern art sculpture. Welcome to Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park!
I have only lived in Cincinnati for two years. When I became a Lomographer in March of 2010, I began searching for some unique locales to photograph for my folio. When I discovered Pyramid Hill and watched some videos about it, I knew it would be the perfect place to document in analogue. You can drive through it, park your car and simply walk the nature trails leading from one sculpture to the next (there is a handy map you can get online or at the front gate)
At least 40 artists have contributed to this unique outdoor space. Only one of its kind exists that I am aware of at this scale. They offer picnic facilities, an annual art fair, kids programs, a tea room, an amphitheater, and holiday lighting during Thanksgiving through New Years.
Some of the sculptures were small, some were absolutely massive, like “Abracadabra” by Alexander Liberman. Three of this artist’s works are on display in the park. The “Ohio Star” is another one of my personal favorites. “Tory’s Comet” is a really interesting wooden structure, and “The Age of Stone” resembles a replica of Stonehenge with a modern twist. If you are ever in the Cincinnati area, or live here locally, you owe it to yourself to come and experience Pyramid Hill firsthand. I experienced it with my little friends the Shkolnik, Agfa Isola, Holga, Fisheye, and LOMO LC-A cameras.
And they sure didn’t let me down.
What Lomo memories will you make at Pyramid Hill?
