Porter Sculpture Park

Quirky and whimsical. He's s nice man who has a true passion about his art. He allowed our Goldens to wander with us. He was very proud to show his [picture of his] large horse statue that he made at his primary home. $8 per adult. Helps the guy out with creating more of his art.

World's Largest Ball of Invisible Twine.

Porter Sculpture Park

Awesome stop! Wayne lives 150 miles from the park and is currently trying to figure out how to transport his giant horse here, which he showed us on a photo canvas. When asked where he will put it, Wayne says, over there with his back end towards the freeway, so people in the cars going by can take a picture of their boss! Don't leave without a photo by the World's Largest Invisible Ball of Twine!

Our family stopped here on our 4,000+ mile road trip. We hate to admit that at first we did not want to pay for the admission, so only two of our four family members ventured out to pay. The artist himself insisted that the other members of our family join us at no cost. After viewing his amazing artwork, we discovered it was well worth the minor fee and paid the difference. Stop if you can and enjoy his wonderful creativity!

Horse sculpture.

Porter Sculpture Park

Unique outdoor sculpture park exhibits more than 50 sculptures by artist Wayne Porter. In August 2018, a 40-ton giant horse sculpture will be added to the park.

[Audrey Porter, 05/03/2018]

Wayne has said that the Horse is the biggest, heaviest artwork he will ever make -- and 40 tons seems like a tough number to top.
