Sculpture Garden

What is Sculpture Garden?

Established in memory of Minnie Rae Wood, the Sculpture Garden contains eight permanent pieces of art and nine to 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.
