The grounds and sculptures are equally superb, and even qualify as fairly peaceful if you arrive soon after it opens. Buckminster Fuller and Dale Chihuly are among the big names, but their works are not necessarily the most arresting.More

Beautiful garden with art in it. You will get a completely different experience than in a gallery because the art is set in nature.
