Sculpture Garden Ceremony

The Lyndon House Arts Center is pleased to announce the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Reception celebrating the newest works by Harold Rittenberry Jr. Donated by Dan and Sally Wyche Coenen and the Athens Area Community Foundation, three outdoor sculptures, permanently installed on the campus of the Arts Center, create the new Harold Rittenberry Jr. Sculpture Garden.
Mr. Rittenberry is a self-taught artist who has spent his life in Athens creating metal works recognizable for his fanciful imagery and skill of storytelling. Located in a number of principal sites in Athens and Atlanta, the newest sculpture, commissioned for the Lyndon House, celebrates art, the history of the Lyndon House, fables, environment and love.
The Ribbon Cutting event will include words from members of the community, Lyndon House Arts Center and Athens-Clarke Government, followed by light refreshments.
