Because Socrates Sculpture Park is filled with unique artwork, it’s easy to overlook the 10 x 28′ billboard that greets visitors as soon as they enter the green space. Since 1999, it has served as a canvas for images that are installed once or twice a year. Artists utilize the space to set the context and tone for whatever show is on display.
