The Woodlands Outdoor Sculptures

"If I have seen farther, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants"
Quote by Sir Isaac Newton

"Tony,
   We all had a great time yesterday. Lots of fun and we could hear every interesting word even during rush hour and high winds.
Thank you!"

A tour of 8 local residents

From the moment I saw, "On the Shoulders of Giants" by Robert Cook, it has been my goal to contribute something that would build an awareness and appreciation for each and every outdoor sculpture that resides in The Woodlands, Texas area.

"The tours conducted by Tony Motto are informative, well-run, and entertaining. Tony is very knowledgeable and humorous. Members of the Fine Arts Council have participated in two 'Sculp-Tours' with Tony. The tours are a wonderful and comfortable way to learn about the uniqueness of the Woodlands through the many beautiful outdoor sculptures that we often fail to notice in our travels around the area. Tony's passion for the arts is evident in his enthusiasm."
--Pat Scwhartz, Co-President,
The John Cooper School Fine Arts Council, 2011

The Woodlands outdoor sculptures collection is one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures for a community of its size in the continental United States. There are numerous unique sculptures situated throughout The Woodlands area. It is my pleasure to present this massive collection of artwork here in a virtual tour format.

This website will be a success if it motivates people to search for these wonderful sculptures in their natural settings. Take a moment from the quick-paced lives we are forced into and treasure the beauty that stands literally at your backdoor.

"It was a great tour, with lots of details about the sculptures and the history of The Woodlands.  Thanks for taking the time to answer all of our questions.  We had a wonderful time!"

OR take a Sculp-Tour! View over 20 different sculpture settings in comfort and learn all the interesting facts and fun tidbits about each one. Each tour takes about two hours and costs only $15.00 per person.

"What a wonderful tour, Tony. You were so knowledgeable and spoke so clearly. I learned so many new things about
The Woodlands and saw art I never knew was here,
after living here since 1985!
Thanks, Barbara & Rick"
