About the Sculpture Garden

The Pamela and Robert B. Goergen Sculpture Garden opened to the public on February 9, 2019. Explore the child-like magic of looking through the trees, bushes, and flowers to find beautiful sculptures. You will find a large, graceful sculpture that moves by the air currents made by George Rickey, as well as a large yellow sculpture, inspired by dancing, made by Keith Haring. Other sculptures on view include works by Antony Gormley, Jenny Holzer, Franz West, Fernand Léger, Paul Manship, Ugo Rondinone, Joel Shapiro, and others

Keith Haring, (American 1958-1990), Julia, 1987
