In 1983, an ad-hoc committee brought the Columbus Symphony Orchestra to the dedication of Scioto Park. The success of this activity encouraged the committee to form Dublin Arts Council. Scioto Park is also home to Leatherlips, the first Art in Public Places project of Dublin Arts Council. The 12-foot high native limestone sculpture of the Wyandot Indian Chief has overlooked the park’s amphitheatre since 1990.
