Sculpture by Kurt Steger

Opens April 6, 2024

Situated between the Hammond’s museum and Japanese Stroll Garden, our small Tea Hut now provides a bridge between visitors’ enjoyment of art and nature. The installations of a few select works of art will be made of natural materials, either physically and/or thematically and serve to give thought and form to the integral interconnectedness of humans and our environment. The sculptures of Kurt Steger perfectly embody this connection, as can be seen by his three sculptures made of wood and paper and entitled Continuum 1, 2, and 3.

Kurt Steger has been a carpenter, woodworker, and sculptor for over four decades. He brings a high level of craftsmanship, design, and ingenuity to his creations, which in turn express his concern for the environment and humanity. His work has many influences, from Shamanism to Buddhism to Western psychology. Steger’s accomplishments include an installation in Sacramento City Hall in Sacramento, CA, a traffic circle sculpture in Grass Valley, CA, and an interactive sculpture and healing ceremony conducted at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington D.C., honoring the ten-year anniversary of 9/11. Steger's work is in private, public, and museum collections, and in 2017 he received a NYFA Sculpture Grant. He teaches woodworking and recently started a woodworking program for children and adults in which he emphasizes the importance of working with one’s hands as a way of building positive character traits. His current and most ambitious sculptural project is the creation of his home sculpture garden, including a studio that he designed and built. Steger has lived in the Lower Hudson Valley since 2017.
