This collection consists of surveys of outdoor sculptures in Santa Clara County. Each survey includes the name of artist,
year the sculpture was created, dimensions and materials of the sculpture, where the sculpture is located, and any preservation
or conservation needs of the sculpture. Each survey includes a photograph of the sculpture.
In 1994 the San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs conducted a survey of outdoor sculptures in Santa Clara County for preservation
and conservation purposes. The Office used Save Outdoor Sculpture! (SOS!) techniques for this survey. The SOS! was created
by the National Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Property to promote the conservation and preservation of outdoor
sculptures around the nation.
