Donate to the Mary Lou Dewey Sculpture Park

The purpose of the Friends of the Mary Lou Dewey Sculpture Park is to assist in the purchase and placement of new sculptures for the park. In addition, funds also assist in the maintenance, beautification, and activities of the Mary Lou Dewey Sculpture Park.

Toby Mendez: Our Next Sculptor

The next sculpture in Westminster’s Mary Lou Dewey Sculpture Park will be created by Toby Mendez. Toby is a Maryland-based sculptor with over 25 years of experience in creating significant works of art. These include The Thurgood Marshall Memorial in Suffolk County, New York, A Tribute to the Oyster Tonger at Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Solomons, and The Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards, dedicated in 2012 and featuring the six Orioles in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Thank you to all of our Mary Lou Dewey Sculpture Park Donors

We would like to thank the Carroll County Commissioners and the Maryland State Library Capital Grants program for funding the renovation of the Westminster Branch and the park in front of the library, the City of Westminster for reconstructing the crosswalk leading to the park, and the Carroll County Bureau of Facilities and the Detention Center for support during the branch renovation.

We are also grateful to the following individuals whose generous donations are allowing us to purchase sculpture for the park, making it a distinctive destination for our residents.
