Sculpture in the park, August 6-8, Land of love

Considered one of the finest sculpture shows and the top of all outdoor exhibitions of three-dimensional works, the 37th annual Sculpture in the Park show in Loveland will take place August 6-8.

The works of a 160-artist jury in Sculpture in the Park cover the grounds of Benson Sculpture Garden, 2908 Aspen Drive, where the 10 acres also contain 172 permanent works. Among the artists from the Pikes Peak region chosen for this exhibition is Richard Pankratz of Monument, whose works have been selected for 23 years.
