What is Sculpture Garden?

Established in memory of Minnie Rae Wood, the Sculpture Garden contains eight permanent pieces of art and ten sculptures that participate in our annual exhibit, remaining on the grounds for a full calendar year. The Sculpture Garden is open to the public during our regular business hours and by appointment at other times.  New artwork is installed in May of each year, with a garden party opening reception that’s free to the public to enjoy.

The 15th Annual Sculpture Garden exhibit is currently on view (see artwork images below).  The 16th Annual exhibit will open on Saturday, May 9, 2020.
