The Fire Circle

The central point of the sculpture park is a 6 foot wide fire circle, where stories are told, songs are sung, and the mythical characters come to life. It is built of local stone with bronze plaques attached to the outside rim. The bronze plaques depict some of the mythical characters and symbols of the many and varied cultures that have come together near this confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers. So many people from around the world have met here.

DVD available.

Artist Florence Bird has made a DVD featuring each of the plaques on the fire circle. For a minimum donation of $60.00, the Mississippi River Sculpture Park will send you your very own DVD.
