The nonprofit annually hosts world-class sculptors in the historic park for a weekend of sculpture displays, demonstrations, refreshments and student sculpture displays, all accompanied by local musicians.
Sculpture in the South welcomes both locals and out-of-town visitors to stroll though its outdoor sculpture park and get to know sculptors from across the country.
