Viles Arboretum Art Trail
Viles Arboretum's Art Trail creates a bridge to our botanical collections and natural environs through art.
It's primary goal is to introduce visitors to the interplay between art and nature, enhance the educational experience, and create a public space for inspiration.
Most of the pieces are for sale, as noted on the signs located at each sculpture. Ten percent of the sale price is retained by and supports the work of the Arboretum.
