Designed with the flexibility to accommodate changing sculptural installations, the John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden provides an innovative venue for experiencing art in a dynamic natural landscape. Transformed by season, time of day, and even weather, the Garden is a place where the community can gather and participate in an outdoor gallery space, a site for open-air educational programs, a unique venue for special events, or even just an inspiring space for quiet reflection on aspects of creativity revealed by art in its relationship to natural beauty.

Since its opening in the fall of 2018, the Caddell Sculpture Garden has been a source of joy, wonder and festivity as well as a calm respite from a busy world, where visitors can relax and recharge.  There is something in the Garden for everyone.

Garden Fun

This spring, families can enjoy outdoor games and art activities in the Garden. Beginning Saturday, March 27, and continuing each Thursday through Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM until May 30, 2021, visitors can play with giant lego blocks, connect four, and cornhole on the lawn, read children’s art books under the trees, play make-believe with our puppet stage, and create colorful patterns with our weaving wall. Families will also be able to take part in art activities in our outdoor education courtyard.
