The beauty inside the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville will now be reflected on the outside as well.
The center Wednesday held a groundbreaking for a sculpture garden that will serve as a multipurpose space for the organization on Green Street.
“It’s going to be another green space but also a functioning space for events that we do for the community, and classes and workshops and contemplation and all sorts of things like that,” said Amanda McClure, the Quinlan’s executive director.
The addition was made possible by a donation received through the Starlet Rhodes Jones Foundation.
“In talking about what would really benefit this organization as well as our ability to serve the community, (we decided) to have an outdoor space that mirrors what we have inside,” McClure said.
The garden is set to open within the next three months, according to McClure.
