On Sunday, October 1, 2017, the expansion of the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden was dedicated.
The expansion more than doubled the area of the garden. It also allowed for larger sculptures to be installed.
The construction took nearly a year. The design for the garden and the landscaping have all been done by the Little Rock Parks and Recreation Department.
A dozen new sculptures were part of the expansion, which brought the total to 66 pieces by 48 different artists. (More have been added in the past two years.)
The Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden was originally dedicated in 2009 at Riverfront Park.
