The Loveland High Plains Arts Council in Loveland, Colorado, has just completed the 34th annual Sculpture in the Park show in Aug, 2017. This group is very amazing and contributes a great deal to many in the community. It is a private non-profit organization, established in 1984 for the purpose of promoting sculptural arts for the cultural and economic benefit of the entire community. The proceeds generated from the annual Sculpture in the Park show go towards the purchase of sculpture for Benson Sculpture Garden as well as towards the funding of park capital improvements and landscaping.
The organization is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is supported by hundreds of extraordinary community volunteers.
This extraordinary collection of art is situated around a lagoon in the midst of trees, flowers, and natural habitat areas. With the Rocky Mountains as a majestic backdrop, Benson Sculpture Garden has been described as "one of the most unique sculpture gardens in the nation". It has also been recognized as “one of the 200 most important modern and contemporary art sites around the world" and as "one of the 20 must-see contemporary art sites across the USA". It is open to the public throughout the year and annually this "public treasure" draws tens of thousands of visitors from around the world.
