Art is powerful. It defines a community and gives it character. It builds a community by enhancing the quality of life. An expanding arts program in Town & Country will contribute to our cultural fabric.
The City of Town & Country celebrated its 65th anniversary of incorporation in 2015. To commemorate this milestone, a public sculpture has been commissioned by the Town & Country Public Arts Commission and will be installed on the grounds of the new Town Square.

This sculpture project is called Discovery. It will be a multi-phase piece that will communicate the essence of the name, Town & Country. It celebrates the confluence of the town experience with the joy and pleasures derived from living with nature, representing the unique identity of our community.
There will be one central figure of a horse and a dog. Several animals may be added later and placed around the site. The Town & Country Public Art Commission chose a representational sculpture by internationally famous sculptor, Harry Weber, of domestic and wild animals in a natural setting to represent the Discovery of nature and the rural lifestyle highly valued by the residents of Town & Country.
The Town & Country Public Arts Commission is accepting donations to fund the horse and dog sculpture. The goal is $139,000. All funds will be privately raised, accepted by the City and eligible as a tax deductible donation. Donors will receive a donation receipt. Donations can be made online or via mail.
