“Girl Kneeling with Shell”

Sculpted from Rowan County pink granite.

"Girl Kneeling with Shell" is one of only a small number of artworks in Waterworks' permanent collection. As a non-collecting museum accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, Waterworks rotates its indoor gallery exhibitions three times a year, and "on loan" sculpture in the outdoor spaces on a year-long schedule.
