NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A turtle hanging in the air, a large vintage baby carriage, and a raven perched on a skull are just a few of the 10 new discoveries in the Sculpture For All exhibition now on view at the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden at Stephen F. Austin State University.

The message they send is in the eye of the spectator and not necessarily the artist.

Sculptor Joe Barrington's ravens are pretty popular at the SFA sculpture garden. Will his latest welded-steel creation be as well liked? Sculpture For All founder Jeff Brewer can't wait to find out.

"We moved it a little bit from the entrance,” Brewer said. “It was a little ominous when you walked into the garden."

The title is Message For Mankind to be interpreted any way you like. 

"Being alive is a crazy thing, so you got to take your own ideas of what art is and bring it into it,” Brewer said.

The Sculpture For All public reception is free. Guests are invited to the Azalea Gardens Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. The awareness will hopefully lead to continued donations to keep Sculpture For All thriving.
