Local bluestone and crushed red stone, 2019

The outdoor art piece Labyrinth by Deborah Ketter on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail in Easton, Pennsylvania, features stones and is 50 feet in diameter.

Labyrinth is 50 feet in diameter with lanes made from bluestone. More than 150 tons of stone were used in construction by the artist and community volunteers, with ground preparation and heavy lifting by Easton’s Public Works Department. This interactive piece serves as the basis for community conversations and programming around mindfulness, meditation, and all types of health and wellness.

An Easton resident, Ketter builds labyrinths and facilitates labyrinth walks as a meditative process. A Kripalu yoga teacher, artist, and certified Veriditas labyrinth facilitator, Ketter uses a creative and therapeutic approach to teach the art and science of yoga with a focus on guided relaxation. She specializes in sharing practical tools that help students cope with difficult situations and transform negative emotions into positive feelings.
