Liberty Hill International Sculpture Park
A Liberty Hill local artist, Mel Fowler, a painter and sculptor returned from a European International Sculpture Symposium in 1975. Inspired, he endeavored to organize the first symposium of its kind in the southwest. Fowler considered Austin, Texas, but another local of Liberty Hill, James Vaughan, convinced him to hold the symposium in Liberty Hill. The International Sculpture Symposium took place in the fall of 1976 in celebration of the United States Bicentennial. The small town hosted 25 sculptors from six countries.
Many of the artists resided with local families who provided room and board for the two months that the artists created. Local organizations provided meals and local businesses supplied the materials for the sculptures. Concrete, steel, native granite and native limestone where the primary mediums used. Without state or federal funds, the Liberty Hill community welcomed people of different cultures and countries into their homes and hearts. At a time when people felt separate, the community became part of something lasting.
These time-worn monuments to an artistic endeavor stand today in Liberty Hill, Texas.
