Outdoor Sculpture

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s grounds feature sculptures that delight visitors of all ages. From Deborah Butterfield’s Kua to Burt Brent’s The Heavyweight, a range of artistic styles can be found. Another highlight is Kent Ullberg’s striking bronze whooping cranes that stand as iconic sentinels at the garden’s entrance.
