According to Americans for the Arts, the arts are integral to the lives of our citizens. We appreciate them for their intrinsic benefits—their beauty and vision and how they inspire, soothe, provoke, and connect us. The arts ennoble us as people, providing bridges between cultures and embodying the accumulated wisdom, intellect, and imagination of humankind. The Decatur Parks Foundation, along with the Decatur Park District, Children’s Museum of Illinois, Decatur Area Arts Council, and Neuhoff Media present the Scovill Sculpture Park. Thanks to a philanthropic gift that made this sculpture garden possible, visitors will take advantage of the unique, sometimes whimsical, thought-provoking sculptures positioned along 800’ of walkways connecting Scovill Zoo and Children’s Museum.
Join us for the Scovill Sculpture Park Community Walk on Saturday, July 16th from 11-1pm. Stroll through the park and meet the artists! Plus the first 500 people will receive a commemorative picnic blanket!
