If art is in the eye of the beholder, one statue in downtown St. Paul is a sight to see.

"I'm sure there are many people who have no idea that's it even here," Nancy Wellington, with Ramsey County Historical Society, said.  

The Vision of Peace is a 60-ton, 36-foot high statue that depicts five Native Americans sitting around a fire smoking their pipes of peace.
