Trombone Player - Charles Buddy Rogers

I'm really glad I came to this. There are several sculptures here. My favorite is the elaborate, beautiful Fountain of Life. As of early March 2022, there is also a display of large metal dinosaur sculptures across the street.

Trombone Player - Charles Buddy Rogers

Buddy is on the corner of a little park near the theater and the Fountain of Life that has a number of animals and sculptures. A cowboy who seems to have no name plaque is in the same park square. An easy stop if you're in the area.
