Sculpture Garden

The John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden

Continually on view with rotating and permanent installations

Art in the Garden in the John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden expands over three acres. Transformed by season, time of day, and even weather, the Garden provides an ever-changing and contemplative haven to view works of art and to enjoy the natural beauty of our Park.

POSTPONED–New Installations Opening + Reception

The safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and visitors are always our highest priorities. Due to the risks surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), this event has been postponed. The new date will be released at a later date.

Fans of outdoor art—join us in celebrating the latest additions to the John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden. New works by North Carolina artist Patrick Dougherty and Alabama artist Jamey Grimes embrace nature and are imbued with a sense of whimsy and wonder. Come early to learn about their practice, and make sure to stay for the reception that follows in the Garden where you can mingle with the artists and explore their installations.
