Featured Art

New Adventures statue"New Adventures" is the bronze sculpture that adorns the Main Library's rear patio. Sculptor Gary Alsum, a resident of Colorado, says that his inspiration comes from memories of his own childhood and from observing his children and their friends as they play and interact. This bronze sculpture was a gift from TMP Architecture, Inc. and Frank Rewold and Son, Inc.
