Janesville Art as a bridge

In Janesville, it’s not just murals but also sculptures! For instance, their pedestrian bridge connecting east and west downtown Janesville has the Resilience Sculpture.

After crossing the bridge, the kids immediately spied The Bubbler. The Bubbler is not only a sculpture, but also becomes a kid favorite during the warmer months as a splash pad.
