This April the RLS Museum and RLS Middle School collaborated to create the first Inspired by Stevenson art installation. The installation features 27 original portraits of RLS and interpret five poems from Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses.

Come by and see the installation at Library Lane and Adams Street then be sure to visit the Museum down the street to learn more about RLS and how you can support projects like this!

If you have enjoyed this installation and would like to see similar projects please let the St. Helena City Council know or send an email to the RLSM at our OFFICE.
