Many of the sculptures spread throughout the grounds of the Arts Center may go unnoticed, but if you look, you’ll see that the gardens and surrounding areas of the Arts Center are filled with interesting and unique public art. While some of the larger pieces are well known and easily visible, there are many bronze sculptures by local artists just waiting to be appreciated. This peaceful garden provides many spots to sit and relax or catch some of the many outdoor events.
