If you’re in Bend, chances are you love being outside, and that goes for our art, too!
We’ve got sculptures in the wild, and we’re not the only ones who think that’s cool. Bend’s roundabout sculptures were honored by Americans for the Arts as one of the most innovative approaches to Public Art in the country. All this great, accessible art is thanks to Art in Public Places, a visionary local organization on the arts scene since 1967.
Art in Public Places, supported by the Bend Foundation and private donations, is a non-profit organization that’s overseen installation of over 45 sculptures throughout town. Works of art are selected through a process that includes public input and the results enhance the cultural environment for citizens and visitors alike!
