Sculpture parks and gardens, whether woodland sanctuaries or urban retreats, sprawling sites or intimate oases, offer sculpture lovers and artists alike unique ways to experience the outdoors, sculpture, and the intersections between nature and culture. Since the mid 20th century, these venues have become important tourist destinations and essential aspects of public life. This book surveys a wide range of sculpture parks and gardens focusing on contemporary art.
