Unique and well placed sculpture of various sizes, styles and shapes, and metals. One of the surprising pieces was one that looked like a ivy type that appeared dry (dusk in December) and was actually the metal art dropped over a low wall.

The Cullen Sculpture Garden is an attractive sanctuary. They have an impressive collection of world class sculpture in a wonderfully landscaped space. It is across the street from the MFA. Great place to eat a bag lunch away from the hustle and bustle.
