OGUNQUIT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Ogunquit Museum of American Art features several impressive pieces in its gallery, but as you walk up to the doors you can't help but admire the landscape.
The gardens accentuate the sculptures scattered around 3 acres of the museum that are cared for by John Prendergast and Carol Woodman. The couple have been encouraging perennials and replanting annuals since 1996.
"We love this place," said Woodman. "It's a passion of ours and we've always said if and when we win the lottery we'll work here for free."
In the spring Woodman and Prendergast are at their busiest preparing the sculpture gardens for opening day on May 1st. After that they normally work one day a week maintaining what they've done and taking compliments from countless passers by like Norman Horowitz visiting from New York City.
"The placement of every plant interspersed with the sculptures and the trees and the landscaping. I think it's magnificent," said Horowitz.
The Ogunquit Museum of American Art is open seven days a week from 10 am - 5 pm. Admission is $10, but they also have discounts for seniors, students and children.
