The Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden is expanding to showcase additional artwork acquired through proceeds from the Sculpture at the River Market Exhibit. Quickly outgrown, the additional space will allow for more than a dozen sculpture placements. To start, NSG has placed Jane DeDecker's Shortcuts, Lil' Sis; Leo Osborne's Of Grace, a Dan Ostermiller bear - Le Grand Pere; and Big Bill by Tim Cotterill (the Frogman)

The sculpture garden features natural terraces and walkways designed by City of Little Rock's Leland Couch, Mark Webre & National Sculptors' Guild's John Kinkade. The design creates a more intimate space to view smaller works within the Riverfront Park and is ideal for hosting receptions, as well as, allowing visitors to enjoy the sculptures in solitude. The sculpture garden is located northeast of The Marriott in Riverfront Park and is just one stop of many public art placements along the Arkansas river to enjoy artist's sculptures from across the nation. #SculptureGarden #ArkansasArt #RiverfrontPark
We've just finished installing two more Tim Cherry bronze sculptures at the Arkansas Children's Hospital. Tim's Whole Hog and Bear Ball join over two dozen sculptures by National Sculptors' Guild members Mark Leichliter, Jane DeDecker, Clay Enoch, Herb Mignery, Don Rambadt and more by Tim Cherry.
Our primary goal with the art placements in the outdoor courtyard was to enhance the area with whimsical sculptures inspired by native wildlife. We hope discovering all of the artwork we placed here lifts the spirits of patients and families.

The National Sculptors' Guild has worked with the City of Brighton to place a number of bronze sculptures by Fellow Jane DeDecker at the entrance of the Recreation Center on 11th Avenue, Brighton, Colorado. The pieces each speak to discovery and play, depicting youth actively interacting with nature.
Jane states... “My work is a cumulative process made of my life experiences and my desire to sculpt the human form. Each piece tells a story of how it was created - every stroke supporting the narrative.”
Part of Jane’s artistic genius is her ability to select a moment to which all of us can relate on a personal level. These moments span all generations, depicting a universally recognized scene. This scene may speak of the love between parent and child, the freedom of a child’s imagination or the simple dignity of everyday tasks. Each is a timeless expression of the human experience, causing us to reflect and evaluate the importance of love, relationships and achievement. - John Kinkade, Executive Director of the National Sculptors' Guild

JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
