New Artwork Added to Ault Park Gardens

A new piece of stone sculpture artwork by Marjorie Pease Applegate has been added to the Ault Park Gardens. This piece is part of a series of works by Applegate within Eden Park, Cincinnati Art Museum, and others at Northern Kentucky University, The Village of Indian Hill, the Cincinnati Nature Center, Spring Grove Cemetery, Seven Hills School, and with numerous private collectors. 

The piece was dedicated on October 2, 2021 in honor of the artist’s sister, former Cincinnati Parks Foundation Board member, and Founding Women’s Committee member, Ellen Pease Sole.

You can find the new piece in the southwest corner of the central garden in Ault Park. It features a babbling water fountain and is surrounded by beautiful plantings by Cincinnati Parks team members.
