University of Rio Grande Sculpture Park

All the works were created by professional sculptors from throughout the United States. The concept for establishing the park was initiated by our friend and arts consultant Brooks Jones. It was then launched with the donation of “Folded/Circle Ring” by Fletcher Benton, along with generous financial support from Bob Evans. Both Brooks and Fletcher were natives of Jackson county who developed international reputations in the arts. Bob Evans was a nationally famous businessman and entrepreneur and life-long supporter of the university. They each deserve our enthusiastic appreciation. Brooks had always been a lover and promoter of the arts and upon his death also donated an outstanding collection of art from his private collection. This collection can be seen on the second floor of the Greer Museum and Gallery. Fletcher still lives and works in San Francisco.
