Image credit: Shark Bites by Cory Clinton is on display in Art in the Park, an exhibition of sculptures by New England artists at Elm Park, Worcester courtesy of the Worcester Arts Council. Cory says the goal of creating large or life-sized animals is to create something in real space that is accessible no matter who looks at it. The link between naimals and human emotion is one of the strongest. By creating something beautiful with my hands from a common material often overlooked for its expressive properties, I seek to inspire emotion and ignite passion in the viewer. Art in the Park was founded to present public art to a broad community, to promote the works of artists, enhance outdoor spaces, and enrich llives and create visibility for the greater Worcester area.
