On Display at Raven Rock State Park in Lillington, NC Summer 2016.

This educational outdoor art installation was created for Raven Rock State Park in Lillington, NC
and includes a series of ten animals that were  permanently installed on the Longleaf Loop Trail.


Garden of Art 

Sixteen monumental sculptures designed and fabricated by UNCP students and faculty are currently featured in the newly created Art Garden. 
Located on the corner of Main and Church streets in Laurinburg, NC, the new outdoor space was dedicated June 16, 2016.  The dedication marks the beginning
of annual exhibitions of public art unlike any other in the area. The garden is intended to become a gathering spot for future public events,
such as music and arts festivals and other community-based projects. The exhibition space is an excellent example of the university working with local communities to enhance the quality of life. 
Special thanks to Adam Walls and his crew of outstanding students.
