Pricey art on view for free at Como Park

garden.jpgHold on to that Harriet Frishmuth sculpture if you own one. It’s worth a lot.

Those of us who don’t own any of the Philadelphia-born scuptor’s work can trek on over to St. Paul’s Como Park conservatory for a view. No cost. However donations always appreciated.

What a pleasant surprise to discover that Como visitors can view two works by one of the country's most gifted artists.

Como's two Frishmuth solid bronze sculptures, Crest of the Waves in the park's palm dome, and Play Days in the sunken garden, were 1960s-era gifts to the conservatory from the William R. Anderson family.

Those of us looking for affordable family entertainment in The Cities are always satisfied by a visit to Como Park. It has evolved into one of the state's must see attractions.

This weekend's event on Sunday, August 21 is the Japanese garden lantern lighting festival.
