Big eyeball.

Big Eyeball

Laumiere Sculpture Park seems to constantly be expanding. Also, the park is extremely dog friendly, with certain sculptures dedicated to interacting with their senses.

This year is the 35th anniversary of this place, which has even more art than just the eyeball, but we didn't have time to walk through it.

Big Eyeball

Great park with lots to see including too many sculptures to mention. Only minutes off the road. Great place for a picnic or to stretch your legs. Walk all of the way into the park and you will find what can only be described as an Alien landing pad. A fully powered slab of concrete with heavy duty tie downs. What else could it be? A great time for for anyone and everyone.

Big Eyeball

Laumeier Sculpture Park has many large works of art placed in an outdoor setting. Great place to take a walk with the family, play frisbee and enjoy the arts. A Big Eyeball is right near the entry to the park.

The fiberglass Eyeball is the 2007 creation of artist Tony Tasset.
