Explore a collection of 23 larger-than-life copper frogs taking part in a variety of activities, including playing instruments, catching butterflies, and meditating on a lily pad. Displays include the “Tree Frog,” nestled in a stately white oak, “Zenny,” relaxing on his lily pad in the fountain of the May T. Watts Reading Garden, and the “Jazz Trio,” set in the Arboretum’s Arbor Court. The statues are the work of North Carolina-based sculptor J.A. Cobb, who fashions his work from sheets of copper around steel armatures.
