Sculpture at the Armory

The first significant sculpture to grace the new Wassenberg Art Center at the renovated Van Wert Armory is a12' tall offset archway portal transitioning guests from the street to a difference experience. To truly experience this impressive structure please visit us here at our new home. This sculpture was designed and created by international sculptor, Michael Bendele from nearby Delphos, Ohio. The curving and organic branches represent a bold statement that the arts are strong in not only Van Wert but small communities the world over. As you pass through the portal the busy street is left behind as you enter the world of art. Experience!
