Groundbreaking for Sculpture Fields

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF-TV) – Chattanooga leaders say a new art park will enhance culture, tourism, recreation, education and economic development on the southside.
They held a groundbreaking this morning at Montague Park on Polk street.
Sculpture parks in America draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to their home cities.
JOHN HENRY, SCULPTOR AND BOARD MEMBER
"This is a museum. This is outdoors, what the Hunter is indoors, downtown. And it’s an exhibition of world class sculpture that the city doesn’t have to pay for."
The Sculpture Fields is a 33-acre outdoor museum in the heart of Chattanooga’s Southside arts district that will eventually be filled with 75 monumental works from all over the world.
14 sculptures have already been delivered.
