#45 In the Field: Brookgreen Gardens

Brookgreen Gardens, south of Myrtle Beach in Murrell's Inlet, South Carolina is the creation of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington who in 1929 purchased four coastal plantations to showcase her sculptures. It is the country's first public sculpture garden and has the largest collection of figurative sculpture by American artists in an outdoor setting in the world. It is also home to an accredited zoo.

Sandy Scott's baroque-inspired masterpiece, Fountain of Peace, was acquired by Brookgreen Gardens in 1995 and is installed on the grounds in front of the old kitchen.
