Whether located in the heart of a metropolis
such as Chicago or on sprawling fields in the
countryside, sculpture parks and gardens have
become increasingly popular destinations for art
and nature lovers alike. These art parks offer visitors
a unique opportunity to interact with large-scale
works designed for quiet contemplation in natural
landscapes. Art Parks is the first comprehensive
guide to North America’s most important outdoor
sculpture parks. Parks are divided into chapters
thematically and by region, with four maps that
locate parks within each geographic area. Each of the
fifty-seven locations—from large-scale parks in the
countryside to small urban gardens and corporate
sculpture collections—is described in detail and
beautifully photographed. With its handy flexibind
format, it is equally at home in the traveler’s
backpack or on the sculpture lover’s side table.
