Art in the Park Outdoor Art Gallery & Sculpture Walk

Walk through the RB&W Sculpture Walk/Outdoor Art Gallery, and stop at each of the 10 sculptures exhibiting along its paths. The Sculpture Walk started in 2018 to bring art, culture, and color to the developing riverfront park.

The Otocast app has a map of each sculpture’s location, information on the artists, and even an audio component to listen to information on each sculpture.

Artists can register by downloading an application and waiver form and sending it to For more information, call 815-622-1106.
