Spent the afternoon exploring the grounds. It was serene and stimulating at the same time. The size of the artwork varies from huge, towering works to small, intimate pieces. As well as size variation, the diversity of subject matter and medium was also great. It...More

Well worth the visit to see local women artists, most still residing locally. New sculptures added and cafe is very pleasantly relocated next to store.

Spent a great Sunday afternoon exploring the grounds and then the fantastic Women in Art exhibit. Have been coming here for years and there is always something new to see. If it's a nice day, pack a picnic lunch. Great place for all ages!

Four hours is more than enough. If weather permits, taking a guided trip of the Sculpture Park is great. I think 90 mins. for the inside exhibits is my personal limit. And it is worth taking some time in the gift shop.
