Encompassing over 160 acres of fields, woodlands, and creeks, the Museum Park presents a unique setting to explore the intersection of art and nature. The Park art program extends into the landscape and invites visitors to encounter dramatic works of art by riding bicycles, walking dogs, or wandering along scenic paths. Step inside a cloud chamber. Picnic near spinning works of art, or jog along wooded trails. Discover points of interest on trailside signs with information on art, plants, animals, and ecology.

The Museum Park art program facilitates collaborations among artists, designers, and environmental scientists to create works of art inspired by the natural world. Artists are commissioned by the Museum to create site-specific temporary and permanent works that directly engage the landscape and present new perspectives on the natural world, exploring our relationship to the environment and the role of nature in contemporary society.
