Fountain Hills Artists’ Gallery Still as a statue with no expression or emotion? Try telling that to the musicians that make up sculptor George Lundeen’s bronze, Joy of Music. Walk on the wild side with big-eared Chauncey the Rabbit or sit astride old George the Tortoise, and feel the art come to life. Want to look into the face of a caveman or marvel at the Power of Thought? Serious, whimsical, thought-provoking and just downright beautiful, this incredible collection by internationally recognized artists will awe and inspire you. Follow the journey through the Civic Center sculpture garden, then view the many pieces of varied art such as bronzes, murals, paintings, photography, and three -dimensional art inside the River of Time Museum, the Community Center, the Library, and Town Hall. But your adventure doesn’t stop there! Follow the map down Avenue of the Fountains and view the magnificent eagle in the piece, Freedom, located on the median. Then continue to Fountain Park where you will meet Teddy Roosevelt and Bob the Frog. But the uniqueness doesn’t stop there! Don’t miss the magnificent African pieces that surround the park and The Veterans Memorial that will take your breath away and your heart. Fountain Hills, Arizona, is the place to see art in all its glory with a majestic backdrop of the McDowell and Four Peaks mountains and the Town’s signature 560-foot tall Fountain, located in the center of its 64-acre park. Follow this map for a self-guided journey or learn the true secrets of the art and the artists by taking a docent-guided art walk.
