Karl Stirner Arts Trail Walk
Join us as we walk along Karl Stirner Arts Trail, “A place where art & nature converge”. Located in Easton, Pennsylvania, the Karl Stirner Arts Trail follows the Bushkill Creek for 1.75 miles. Through the placement of artwork in a transcendent natural setting, the Arts Trail seeks to stir the public imagination and sense of possibility.
Karl Stirner was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1924. Stirner was a World War II veteran, serving with the U.S. Army in New Guinea and the Philippines. Stirner left school at the age of seventeen to study blacksmithing, metalworking, and mechanical engineering. In 1983, Karl moved to Easton, and converted a former industrial warehouse and sewing machine factory on Ferry Street into the Easton Arts Building. This was his home, his gallery and his studio.
