Arts Inspiration

Seeking to inspire an artistic nature in the people of his hometown, statue maker Steven Lloyd Neal crafted the Arts Inspiration Monument. Featuring the mythological Greek musician Orpheus, the monument shows him playing his flute for joy-filled children. Neal’s concept visually illustrates the metaphor of music giving inspirational wings to the listener. Arts Inspiration is located in front of the Vert Auditorium, which is home to the Oregon East Symphony and other performing arts.
