The Loveland High Plains Arts Council
The Loveland High Plains Arts Council, a private non-profit organization, was established in 1984 for the purpose of promoting sculptural arts for the cultural and economic benefit of the entire community. The organization is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is supported by hundreds of extraordinary community volunteers. The main focus of LHPAC continues to be the organization and sponsorship of the annual Sculpture in the Park show.
Each year the proceeds generated from the annual Sculpture in the Park show go towards the purchase of sculpture for Benson Sculpture Garden as well as towards the funding of park improvements and landscaping. Currently, 139 pieces of sculpture grace the grounds of the park. This extraordinary collection of art is situated around a lagoon in the midst of trees, flowers, and natural habitat areas. With the Rocky Mountains as a majestic backdrop, Benson Sculpture Garden has been described as "one of the most unique sculpture gardens in the nation". It is open to the public throughout the year, and annually this "public treasure" draws tens of thousands of visitors from around the world.
