Welcome to Cedarhurst:
Nestled on a 90-acre site in southern Illinois, Cedarhurst celebrates the arts year-round with exciting visual and performing arts programs for the public. The two RV Gypsies explored rolling meadows and woods, home to Cedarhurst Sculpture Park, and the museum's outdoor gallery with over 60 large-scale sculptures. The Mitchell Museum has contemporary art exhibitions in two galleries, including the Children's Gallery. Below are several photos and signs about some of the outdoor sculptures found at the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts.

From the front of this sculpture you can see the finished cow and the outline in the original piece of steel. From this angle behind the sculpture, the cow in front almost seems to fit perfectly into the outline in the original piece of steel.
