Art is powerful. It defines a community and gives it character. It builds a community by enhancing the quality of life. An expanding arts program in Town & Country will contribute to our cultural fabric.
The City of Town & Country celebrated its 65th anniversary of incorporation in 2015. To commemorate this milestone, a public sculpture has been commissioned by the Town & Country Public Arts Commission. This sculpture was installed and dedicated to its temporary location at Longview Farm Park in October, 2016.

This sculpture project is called Discovery. Discovery is a life size bronze horse and dog that communicates the essence of the name, Town & Country. It celebrates the confluence of the town experience with the joy and pleasures derived from living with nature, representing the unique identity of our community.
Once the city's Town Square is complete, the Public Art Commission will move Discovery to the Town & Country Town Square.
The Town & Country Public Art Commission chose a representational sculpture by internationally famous sculptor, Harry Weber, of domestic and wild animals in a natural setting to represent the Discovery of nature and the rural lifestyle highly valued by the residents of Town & Country.
All funds for Discovery have been privately raised, accepted by the City and are eligible as a tax deductible donation. Donors will receive a donation receipt. Donations can be made online.
