Andrew DeVries Sculpture Trail - Atlas Obscura

Andrew DeVries Sculpture Trail

Middlefield, Massachusetts

Dozens of bronze sculptures are woven into the landscape along this trail. 


Andrew DeVries has been creating and selling his bronze sculptures around the world for over 45 years. Quite a few years ago, he moved from his studio in Lenox to a large, peaceful property along the Westfield River. Over the years, he has constructed a sculpture trail that displays more than 30 of his bronze castings. The pieces are arranged with the natural landscape and accompanied by poems.

Much of DeVries’ work explores the human body through forms of movement. Early in his art career, he spent years studying and drawing ballet dancers, and his bronze sculptures often depict dancers in motion. DeVries is often on the property and opens his gallery to speak with visitors.
