Outdoor sculpture walk comes to Mills Park

The Oak Park Sculpture Walk is back for a fifth season, with 12 sculptures on display in an outdoor exhibit through Sept. 5 in Mills Park.

Located near Pleasant and Home avenues just east of Marion Street, the park’s four-plus acres provides a scenic backdrop for the sculptures, which are displayed along the winding walking paths.

This year’s sculptures come from near and far. Oak Park resident Tia Jones-Etu’s Flower, a celebration of the growing season, is located near the park’s northeast entrance. Pieces created by artists from Texas, Missouri and Iowa also are part of this year’s exhibit.

Sculptures are chosen through a juried competition and vary in materials. Brochures with details about the art and the artists are available by the exhibit, at all Oak Park public libraries, area businesses near the park and online at

The Sculpture Walk is organized by the Public Art Advisory Commission, citizen volunteers who promote the acquisition and placement of public art that reflects diversity and artistic expression, and enhances the aesthetic environment of the Village.
