What an outsider art gem!

I saw a huge sculpture of what seemed to be a longhorn from the Interstate, and decided I had to pull off and try to find it. I am so glad I did. What a cool spot. I met the... read more

I saw a huge sculpture of what seemed to be a longhorn from the Interstate, and decided I had to pull off and try to find it. I am so glad I did. What a cool spot. I met the artist and shot the breeze with him, and walked among the whimsical creations, some accompanied by poignant poems handpainted on... More

What can I say about this place other than WOW. The place is awesome and one of the best stops I had on my trip to South Dakota. This should have definitely been on the top 10 things to see in South Dakota. The creator/sculptor is there and is friendly and willing to talk with you about his creations for... More

Lots of interesting pieces. Definitely recommend a visit. It is cool to drive by the cattle on the way back to the pieces of art

My husband and I are on a road trip visiting world's largest and road side attractions. When we arrived at the sculpture park we were greeted by the artist Wayne Porter himself. It probably took us 30 minutes to walk around the sculptures, read his poems and take several pictures. If you are into Tim Burton then this stop will... More

Sculptures like nothing I have seen before, and briliant authentic creative masterworks. Look for the details and humor, and the magnicent scale and methods, materials used. Fresh and charming, bizarre and otherworldly. Golf cart available as I could not have walked. Unique body of work and fascinating artist. Thanks.

In the middle of nowhere a giant bull's head towers above a wheat field. If you opt to investigate it (or if you have sought it out), you'll discover multiple bizarre sculptures. Absolutely worth seeing if you are driving through Montrose.

This was such an incredible surprise! A photographer's dream. The trip in which we visited this sculpture park was one that covered many miles and allowed us to experience a plethora of very wonderful sights, but this is one our family remembers very fondly. Go see it. It's worth it.

We drive west on I-90 every year going to the Black Hills and have always seen the giant bull head, but have never stopped. This year we made a point to stop at the sculpture park and were very happy we did. The $8.00 per adult fee is very reasonable. Wayne Porter was present and we were able to speak... More

We stopped just because. I didn't know what to expect but it wasn't the incredible quality, meaning and whimsy that we found. The shear size of many of the sculptures was enough to impress. But once we started really exploring and examining the sculpture the workmanship blew me away. After all that, I started reading some of the poems that... More

Don't be turned off by the cost of this place. There are some really interesting things to see and explore. Wayne Porter is such an enjoyable host and his work is a combination of true genius and Tim Burton bizarre. The giant bull head (over 60 feet tall) is such a creative place of dragons, bats, frogs, and other surprises.... More
