We have lived outside of Brevard, NC for 5 1/2 years and I realized that I have never highlighted the sculptures that grace our little town on It’s Just Life. Today I am going to change that. You guys know I love outdoor art installations from all of my years of posting and I just never made it a point to find all of them at one time. Chris and I set out on a brisk but sunny Sunday morning to walk the town, so to speak.
The thing I like about the sculptures in Brevard is the fact that they blend into the landscape. We discovered sculptures that we probably have walked by multiple times but didn’t realize they were there. The sculpture project features native animals so I guess it makes sense that they blend into the landscape.
Physical maps are available at the Visitor Center located at 175 East Main Street or you can download a map by clicking here and here. Just a note when using this map. It is not to scale and it helps to read the description on the inside of the brochure to know more about the location of the sculptures. We did a lot of looking and backtracking.
The 20 sculptures are made of various materials – bronze, copper, stone, and steel – and depict animals that are either native to the area or ones that have been recently re-introduced. Various artists have created the sculptures and it is a testament to the quality of artists that we have living in North Carolina.
I am proud to live in an area where arts are such a vital part. Life in Brevard is filled with music, visual art, and pride and I would encourage anyone who loves small town charm to take the time to check out Brevard, North Carolina. Come back tomorrow to view a few more sculptures that grace our streets in Brevard. Don’t forget to leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause – Copeland Oaks Life Care Fund.
