Exhibitions are often for showing new sculpture to the public. In the case of site specific art and public sculptures however, the art is already in the public domain. Public art is what it says, but site specific art is not by definition in the public domain - in the sense of the urban space. It can be located on more remote locations. So it is usually good to install exhibitions of documentation of site specific works of art. A sculptor making mainly commissioned art in public places should show this work to a greater public also. This can be documented public sculpture like environmental works and land art projects. But also his studies and models of sculpture can be interesting to the general public. So there is no reason to maintain that exhibiting one's art is not for every artist.

In 2006 I installed my larger works around our new home in the Finnish Lake District. It is an old estate which had been abandoned for decades until the nineties of the twentieth century. Earlier had been a fruit and vegetable farm with heated greenhouses fields and pastures. Most of the open area is now forested - and on the cleared field with remnants of the orchard, my bronze, steel and wooden sculptures are now exhibited. I named this sculpture park after the name of the estate, Penttilä - it became Penttilä Open Air Museum, POAM.
