Lance Ryan McGoldrick unofficially introduces the soon-to-be installed work A Place to Ponder on Saturday, Aug. 31 from 6pm to 9pm at Factory on 5th Gallery (1715 Fifth Street NW). The first in a series of installations collectively called Lost Highways, A Place to Ponder is described as“an interactive water cube” that will soon find its home in the Lincoln County town of Carrizozo atop a platform made of charred lumber. “With Lost Highways, I want to help people slow down, explore and reconnect with nature, through the beauty of New Mexico,” says McGoldrick. “There are already so many reasons to take a road trip. My sculptures are added excuse to indulge in a little adventure.” For more information about this free, all-ages preview event for this site-specific installation, see losthighwaysnm.com.
