Benson Sculpture Garden, Loveland’s largest sculpture venue, is located at 29th Street and Aspen Drive (east of Taft Avenue) in Loveland, Colorado. Loveland High Plains Art Council sponsors the annual Sculpture in the Park Show and Sale the second weekend of August. This is the largest outdoor juried sculpture show in the United States. Proceeds from the sale go towards purchase artwork for the garden as well as park improvements and landscaping.

Loveland’s Art in Public Places Program is a gift to local citizens and visitors from around the world. Additional sculptures can be found throughout the city – sport complexes, civic buildings, businesses, bridges and parks.

Loveland Visitor Center with Heart When we stopped this week volunteers searched the back room until they found two pieces of literature that gave me the information I requested. Their effort was over and above the call of duty. Several restaurants were recommended that we’ll need to return to Loveland and try. The volunteers have a great deal of pride in their community but give honest, insightful information. We leave well supplied with current travel publications (at least five pounds), a desire to make new discoveries in the area and warm feelings of welcome. What more can we ask of a visitors center?
