This Week – Showcasing Sculpture in the Park and Fine Line Creative Arts Center

Sculpture in the Park

The 12th Annual Sculpture in the Park, the most notable event sponsored by the St. Charles Park Foundation, runs May through mid-October each year.  The landscape of Mt. St. Mary Park presents a striking and engaging show against the backdrop of nature's seasonal beauty.

This event’s purpose is to raise awareness of the sculptural arts and the beautiful parks in downtown St. Charles. The Foundation strives to provide striking sculptural works with substantial breadth and depth in both subject matter and media for audiences to discuss, think about and enjoy.   http://www.stcparks.org/Sculpture/index.htm
