Brick Kids - Life is an Open Book

The Brick Association of the Carolinas commissioned this sculpture honoring the AIA of both North and South Carolina. In keeping with the literary theme of The Green, sculpture garden, "Life Is An Open Book" by Brad Spencer shows brick children climbing an open brick book.

This is only one of many unique and thought-provoking sculptures in the park that deserve exploring.
