It’s rare when adults are invited to introduce youngsters to art by “letting them run around” an exhibition.

Now they can: at “Carole Eisner: Painted Sculpture” show that will be on view through October on the grounds of the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan.

The new outdoor Sculpture Walk — featuring 10 giant multi-colored painted/welded steel works — is open daily from sunrise to sunset, making it a great spontaneous summer/early fall destination for couples, individuals and families, according to Jeffrey Mueller, Silvermine’s gallery curator.

A brochure accompanies the show with the names of each of the pieces with whimsical names such as: “Bird Song,” 2012; “Rhythm in Blue,” 2012; “Queen of Hearts,” 1997; “Totem,” 1999; “Windows,” 1997; and “Puzzle Again,” 2010.

“To start a sculpture, I scan my own scrap heap and choose two or three pieces that really want to be together,” Eisner says in the brochure. “I begin by joining these pieces and develop the sculpture from there. Often the objects themselves suggest a direction to follow.

“I usually don’t sketch in advance. My process is more an assemblage, rather than a pre-formed idea.”
