"The first step in this adventure is to realize that a work of sculpture is quite a different reality from a painting. A sculpture exists in space like a human being, a mountain, a tree, or cloud, and it must be explored in order to be fully appreciated."

David Finn, How to Look at Sculpture, Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1989

Experiencing Sculpture

Looking at a work of art should spark our imagination and inspire us to take a closer look.

You can look at the sculptures on this tour by yourself and answer the questions for yourself, but it will be more fun to look at them with family and friends and talk about each sculpture.  You may not agree with each other but seeing more than one point of view will add to your experience.

Look from a distance, come close in for details, step back, walk around, and take in the whole sculptureRemember: Most museums and sculpture gardens have rules against touching the sculptures.  Please obey "Do Not Touch" signs.

All sculptures are located on the Belleville campus of Southwestern Illinois College, 2500 Carlyle Avenue, Belleville, IL 62221.
