Comprising 237 embellished concrete and mixed-media sculptures built by Fred Smith (1886?1976), the Wisconsin Concrete Park is a vista of life-size and larger tableaux. The Phillips, Wisconsin, site, now managed by Price County, is populated with depictions of people, animals, and events from local and national history, regional lore, and from Smith?s imagination. Concrete sculptures from the site will be on display, complemented by memories of that pivotal experience narrated by Ruth Kohler and set to animation by Souther Salazar.
