An Excuse for Art?

As part of the festivities over the weekend, Boy and I took a little field trip to Big Stone Mini Golf and Sculpture Garden. It was an outing we had been meaning to get to since last summer and let me tell you, it was definitely worth the wait! The art lover in me found Big Stone a fabulous excuse to walk around in someone's personal gallery, studio and fantasy land and we were so wowed by the scuplture that we couldn't be bothered to mess around with our putters at all. On the other hand, the kids that were running around everywhere seemed to be having a blast playing a game of mini golf like none other. Every hole offers a new and different wonderland of carved rock, metal and wood and it's all just so cool that you can't stop being amazed. And besides the fabulous interactive works of art that make up the golf course, there's quite a few resident critters to get up close and personal with too.
The statement "this is SO COOL!" could be heard in abundance, and you know, that's exactly what I was thinking! I'm proud to say Big Stone is one of our neighborhood attractions, but even if you don't live close by, it's absolutely worth the drive.
Here's the best internet bio I could find on the world-recognized artist and owner, Bruce Stillman.

Thanks for posting about that! I heard about it last summer and have been meaning to go, but I lost the name and address of the place. It looks really cool.
