Artists Choose Artists is the 3rd exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park. Using the premise that artists know art best, those who had previously shown at Socrates were asked to nominate the sculptors for this exhibition. Chris Wilmarth, John Willenbecher, and Susanne Wibroe looked at the proposed pieces and made the selection documented on the following pages.
