City of Sculpture

In just four years, Hamilton has gotten a facelift thanks to the efforts of the City of Sculpture committee. With the addition of a traveling show featuring 20 life-like sculptures by J. Seward Johnson, the streets of downtown Hamilton are currently lined with nearly 40 sculptures, from abstract pieces to bronze figures.
Just outside of town, the mastermind behind the City of Sculpture idea, businessman Harry Wilks continues to expand his sprawling Pyramid Hill sculpture park, one of only three outdoor museums in the country dedicated to contemporary monumental sculpture. The city also boasts an artist-in-residence, Dennis C. Baker, who has made the most of his access to a local scrapyard.
