SCULPTURE COLLECTION

 

Exhibited within the gardens is the largest and most comprehensive collection of American figurative sculpture in the country, by sculptors who worked from the early nineteenth century to the present. The collection contains over 2,000 works by 425 artists and in the words of Wayne Craven, author of the book, Sculpture in America, it is "unequaled in its size, focus on figurative works, visibility of the sculpture to the visitor, and integration within a garden setting."

 

The addition of indoor galleries, such as the Jenniwein Gallery and Noble Gallery in the Rainey Sculpture Pavilion, afford the opportunity to exhibit smaller sculptures and include paintings, etchings and other art works by nationally and internationally renowned artists. Often these works are on loan from museums or private collections around the world, and these exhibits give visitors the opportunity to see important works of art that may otherwise be inaccessible.
