Project Description

Neumann Brothers transformed an old building site into a sculpture garden to augment the historic Hotel Pattee in Perry, Iowa. A focal point of the garden is its decorative artwork arches created from scrap metal by artist Albert Paley. The arches were carefully transported and set in place by Neumann Brothers, each arch weighed approximately 18 tons. Neumann also prepped and installed smaller sculptures for the garden. Decorative paving stones followed an intricate pattern resembling a trellis with vines growing in, about, and around a trellis frame. Custom millwork planter boxes and outdoor furniture completed the space.
