Sandi's Millstone was added to the Mansion Sculpture Garden in 2015. Robyn Horn, who designed and sculpted the new piece, is
a native of Fort Smith, and has won numerous awards for her work and was designated an Arkansas Living Treasure by the Department of Arkansas Heritage in 2008. She is the founder and first president of the Collectors of Wood Art, an organization set up in 1997 to foster interest in wood art. Sandi’s Millstone is from her Fractured Millstone Series, carved out of redwood, with a chainsaw and dyed with oil dye to help preserve it.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the amazing artistic talent of Arkansans like Robyn Horn and are thrilled to have a piece of her work in the Mansion sculpture garden,” First Lady Susan Hutchinson said. Sandi’s Millstone was purchased by the Governor’s Mansion Association, a non-profit organization that raises funds for the renovation, improvement, furnishings and endowment for future use by the Mansion.
