From around 1890 to 1930, fountain and garden statuary flourished in the United States, providing important new design and marketing opportunities for American sculptors. The joyful and sometimes frivolous figures created by American garden sculptors of the era were intended to enhance the garden experience by accenting, not dominating, specific garden spaces. This exhibit includes both indoor and outdoor figures collected by Bartlett Arkell and gifted by him to the Museum, and explores our own Memorial Garden through vintage images.
