The Andres Institute of Art is a 140 acre sculpture park with 12 miles of trails and over 100 sculptures on permanent display along the trails. The park is open daily, dawn to dusk, for free to the public. The sculptures primarily come from the Annual International Sculpture Symposium through which artists representing 50 countries have visited the Studio to create sculptures over the past 25 years. Events such as the Concert Series help keep the park and Welcome Center running, as well as cover Symposium expenses. Your support through fundraisers, donations and memberships is vital to keep the AIA alive.
