MONTICELLO -- It's called one of the Seven Wonders of Illinois. Now, Allerton Park has a new addition. She's about 5' tall and made of bronze. It's called "Reflective Moments" and was created by an artist from Michigan. It sits in front of the park's visitors center.

The Monticello home of Robert Allerton has always had many sculptures on the grounds, but this is the first new piece to come to the park in 70 years. After two years, it will be switched out with a new sculpture.
