Sculpture Park


The rural landscape of Salem Art Works sprawls an impressive 119.4 acres, hosting a rotating roster of sculptures by regional, national, and international artists throughout the Cary Hill Sculpture Park. The park is an active vignette promoting a wide array of performances, events, and exhibitions.  The public is invited to experience Cary Hill Sculpture Park at their own pace from dawn to dusk. The Cary Hill Sculpture Park is accessible by car and truck to conveniently make the climb to the top of the hill and enjoy the vast horizon.
