This picture shows some of the beautiful park that surrounds the Viad Tower. In the foreground you can see a life-like sculpture called “Sightseeing” by J Seward Johnson, Jr. It depicts a man with a camera and the man appears to be photographing the children at play which is another sculpture called “Puddle Jumpers” by Glenna Goodacre. You may have heard Ms. Goodacre’s name before. She is the sculptor of the Vietnam Women’s Memorial at “The Wall” in Washington D.C.
To the left you can see the fountain that forms a stone wall that snakes across the park creating an artistic waterfall and small pool of water that was very popular with a flock of birds the day I was there.
Tomorrow I’ll show you some of the art work that decorates this building.
