The Mathews-Sanders Sculpture Garden at Delta State University is right outside our front doors at the Bologna Performing Arts Center! The garden operates on a biennial competition which brings in new pieces for exhibition. This competition provides opportunities for regional and national artists to exhibit their work, makes visible the university’s commitment to and appreciation of artistic endeavors, enhances the vitality of the campus environment, and offers students first-hand educational experiences.
The ninth competition arrived in August 2019. Over thirty pieces of sculpture have been acquired from the eight previous competitions and are now displayed throughout the Delta State campus. Please visit the Mathews-Sanders Sculpture Garden website for the latest news on the garden!
