Del Val visits Grounds for Sculptures

  • A tour guide introduced himself and told us some history about the park including that it was founded in 1992. He showed us how you can interpret different sculptures for different things including this one pictured called “Cock-a-doodle-doo”.

  • The tour guide then took us to different sculptures including this tunnel with art inside.

  • This was the artwork on the outside of that tunnel very opposite of the colors used inside.

  • These sculptures were hidden in bushes and it was very cool to see all the sculptures spread out in such random places. The tour guide then explained the materials and processes they use to keep the sculptures safe in different weather conditions.

  • On the way to The Meadow, we passed by a large sculpture of the painting “American Gothic”. This was very cool to see a large scale of the painting come to life.

  • In The Meadow, there were randomly placed sculptures including this bed that caught the tour’s eyes as we walked passed.

  • In The Meadow, these huge sculptures overlooked a pond.

  • The coolest sculpture I saw on the trip was the man coming out of the ground. This was such a cool concept and the scale of it was crazy.

  • There were many ponds with pretty greenery around it that created a beautiful landscape.

  • The placement of sculptures gave a serene feeling to the landscape.

  • There were also many pretty flowers around the grounds that added color.

  • Sculptures like this made you think what the meaning behind it was and what the sculptor was picturing as they were creating this.

  • This sculpture had mirrors all over it and there were also peacocks that roamed the grounds (not pictured) that we saw throughout our trip.

  • On the way out of the park, there was a huge sculpture to see before we left. We had a great trip and saw many cool sculptures that changed our perspectives on finding the message behind art.
