Outdoor Art in Vermont

A Beautiful Backdrop for Inspiration

Ever seen the world's tallest filing cabinet? What about the two sets of whales' tails in two different Vermont towns? Vermont's outdoor art represents the best of our artists' creativity and showcases how Vermont landscapes and towns not only inspire artists, but also become part of the work and the experience of taking it in. As Vermont continues to respond to COVID-19, outdoor art installations remain one of the safest ways to be inspired.
