Located at the corner of W. 29th St. and Beech Dr., Benson Sculpture Garden and North Lake Park provides a beautiful and unique outdoor setting for showcasing sculpture donated to the City by the Loveland High Plains Arts Council. It is here that the Loveland High Plains Arts Council hosts its annual “Sculpture in the Park” event, which is held the second weekend in August. The High Plains Arts Council, a private not-for-profit organization, was established in 1984 for the purpose of promoting sculptural arts for the cultural and economic benefit of the community.

In May, Art in Public Places, removed six on-loan TAAP 3D sculptures to the lending artists, as the City prepares for the HIP Streets project. The TAAP 3D project will return after the HIP Streets project is completed in early 2027. We look forward to continuing to showcase diverse public artworks from artists throughout the continental U.S.

In mid-June, Trail of Forgiveness by Denny Haskew will be installed at the Police & Courts Building at 810 E. 10th Street. The Visual Arts Commission is grateful for this generous donation to the City of Loveland’s public art collection. This monumental work was inspired by a maquette that the artist created to honor his grandmother. The sculpture is meant to be open to interpretation by the viewer with the hope that it will convey a loving and spiritual message meaningful to all. Trail of Forgiveness is approximately 10 ft x 5 ft by 6 ft.

Muralist Adden Joule was selected from over 200 artists to paint his design titled, Reflections, on the exterior of the Lincoln Gallery building. In addition to Thompson Valley Art League private funding, TVAL was awarded a $10,000 Mural Grant by Art in Public Places in late 2023. For several months, our organizations worked together to commission this modern, expressive design which pays homage to Loveland’s sculpture industry. Swing by often to see the progress!

Denny Haskew’s Strength of the Maker was installed in Benson Sculpture Garden by the High Plains Art Council this morning. We are so pleased to have helped facilitate Denny being represented in the collection with this award-winning composition.

Strength of the Maker is a larger-than-life sized bronze of a Native American brave sculpted to represent all humanity, using his strength to test the strength of a bow. One of the limited edition castings of this powerful monument is in the permanent collection of the Native American Museum of the Smithsonian Institution in DC among other notable placements.

Denny is honored to be included in Benson Park, “Loveland has been my home base for decades and is the place that has shaped my artwork most.”

A dedication of the new additions to Benson will be announced for later this Spring.

This collection of over 175 sculptures by world renowned artists has put Loveland on the map as a sculpture mecca and is maintained through proceeds from the annual Sculpture in the Park event which is held on the 2nd weekend of August. Celebrating 40 years this Summer. Visit lovelandpublicart.org/benson-sculpture-garden/ for more info.
