The Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester is a feast for arts lovers. 

The campus includes several art galleries, an education center with studios for classes and workshops, and a 400-seat auditorium. 

But visitors to the Center can also explore an outdoor sculpture park.  

The mile-long drive to the main campus features a number of  contemporary sculptures, which loom against a natural backdrop of meadow and forest.  Plowed paths invite exploration.

You can walk amongst a colossal collection of ball and jacks by David Tanych.

And the center has just installed a new 30-foot sculpture called "The Muse" , by Jack Howard Potter.

VPR's Neal Charnoff recently traveled to the SVAC sculpture park to speak with Gallery Director Chester Kasnowski.
