The Richard and Pam Salmon
Sculpture Competition, a juried exhibition of outdoor sculpture, is hosted by
the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. The
biennial exhibit of 12-15 large-scale sculptures in the park is in cooperation
with the City of San Angelo Public Art Commission and the City government at
the Sunken Garden Park (700 Block S. Abe Street/W. Avenue D).
Sunken Garden Park includes a
formal sunken garden area where, spring through fall, canna and other flower
displays are featured. The park includes large open areas, landscaped groves
and a walking and jogging track, as well as handsome retaining walls, stairs,
and other stonework created by the WPA in the 1930’s. The large-scale
sculptures enhance an already beautiful spot, and add yet another attraction to
San Angelo’s wonderful River Walk.
Exhibit continues through August 1,
