Juror - Andrée Bober, Founder and Director of Landmarks, the public art program at the University of

Texas, Austin


The Richard and Pam Salmon Sculpture Competition, a juried exhibition of outdoor sculpture, is hosted by the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.  The  yearly exhibit of 12-15 large-scale sculptures in the park is in cooperation with the City of San Angelo Public Art Commission and the City government. Sunken Garden Park (700 Block S. Abe Street/W. Avenue D) includes a formal sunken garden area where, spring through fall, canna and other flower displays are featured. The also park includes large open areas, landscaped groves and a walking and jogging track, as well as handsome retaining walls, stairs, and other stonework created by the WPA in the 1930’s. The large-scale sculptures enhance an already beautiful spot, and add yet another attraction to San Angelo’s wonderful River Walk.
