A Summer of Sculpture - Animals of Freedom REBECCA MERRILL AUGUST 10, 2017

As we celebrate Artist in Residence Greg Wyatt’s Peace Fountain with a retrospective exhibit as a part of A Summer of Sculpture, we also celebrate the Animals of Freedom Children’s Sculpture Garden that surrounds the Fountain.

Goat

The Peace Fountain is dedicated to the creativity of children and to commemorate that, Wyatt invited school children from the Tri-State area to sculpt animals to be bronzed and placed around the sculpture. The current 120 sculptures were crafted over a five year period starting in 1985 and are meant to illustrate how the candid spontaneity of children can show us the way towards peace.

Learn more about Wyatt and his work by visiting the exhibition up through September 10.
