Visitors to Grounds For Sculpture can learn about contemporary sculpture through a variety of educational programs, including:
- Hands-on art-making workshops for adults and children;
- Artist residencies and demonstrations;
- Lectures from artists and experts
- Tours for adults, schoolchildren, toddlers and touch tours for the visually challenged.
Work on an activity together! Sculpture Search in the Park activity sheets are available in the Visitor’s Center. These activity sheets will help guide you through an educational journey in the park while learning about sculpture. Family Exhibition Guides change seasonally and are available for pickup at all information desks. These activity sheets relate specifically to the rotating exhibitions in our indoor galleries.
School or educational groups with advance reservations receive a greatly reduced park admission fee Tuesday-Friday.
The park also offers several day-long events during the year which feature activities for every member of the family. For more information, please visit our calendar.
