Yard art.

Small Yard with Sculptures

Many more sculptures. You can park in the city hall lot and walk right up to the Art Yard.

Small Yard with Sculptures

A house in W. Salem has a yard full of wood carvings and interesting metal sculptures. There is a tiki head and a large razor blade in the front yard, and a human statue that resembles a giraffe in the back yard. I visited on a Saturday and no one was home for me to ask about the sculptures, but it seems that visitors are welcome to explore the yard since there are two open gates in the fence separating the house from the city hall parking lot next door.

I've driven through this town at least 20 times during the past ten years and this is the first time I've seen these sculptures.
