If you've ever wandered into Sheridan's Historic Downtown, you may have been greeted by a Bozeman scout, a Tree of Life, or a Tin Man with a huge heart. Downtown Sheridan is home to more than 60 unique pieces of outdoor art, evidence that a modest public art project that was launched in 2001 with eight sculptures has become something of a community phenomenon.
From Jerry McKellar's beloved Huckleberry Daze grizzly bear to D. Michael Thomas' epic Cool Waters cowboy at Whitney Commons, Sheridan's community art sculptures are curious, creative, and unique. Sheridan is likely the only place in America where you can watch cowboys lock horns with Rhinos, try on a giant steel War Bonnet, or peek inside a metal goat's gut. You can support community art by sponsoring your favorite sculpture, or test your own artistic mettle by submitting your next masterpiece for consideration to the Sheridan Public Arts Committee.
