Sculptures in downtown Laurinburg were created by UNCP students and faculty.

The city of Laurinburg and the UNC Pembroke Art Department have teamed up to create an art garden in the downtown. The garden was dedicated in a ceremony this summer and funded primarily by the city of Laurinburg. It was designed by 12 current art students, as well as, recent graduates and 4 professors at UNCP. It features a trail that wraps around the collection of 16 sculptures; some of which, were previously well-known campus fixtures. The location of the garden used to be a gas station, and the adjacent wall now features old photos of local scenes, from a private collection.
