Grains of Sand
Grains of Sand, by conceptual artist Robert Tannen, encourages exploration of the Museum grounds, in a kind of sculpture scavenger hunt. Fifteen Arkansas boulders of native limestone and sandstone are placed along the trails. The title, Grains of Sand, and the boulders themselves, refer to the ancient sedimentary rock in the Ozarks.
