Newsflash from a Member

One of New York’s little known sculpture gardens is on the grounds of the PepsiCo world headquarters in Purchase, New York.  The Donald M Kendall Sculpture Garden is comprised of 45 modern sculptures by well-known artists nestled in several beautifully designed seasonal gardens. Touring the garden is free and there is an app for that!  ARCS member Suzanne Quigley was asked to write each of the ’sculpture stops’ on the tour.  The ’stops’ have been translated into several languages, and the app includes maps, images, text (and Suzanne’s voice!), descriptions of the plantings, etc.  It is free to download from the Apple and Google app stores.
