The mission statement of Laumeier Sculpture Park - an open-air
museum, covering 105 acres and containing over 70 outdoor
sculptures dotted along a 1.4 mile (about 2.3km) walking trail - is
to "expand the context of contemporary sculpture beyond the
traditional confines of a museum; [and to] initiate a lifelong
process of cultural awareness, to enrich lives and inspire creative
thinking, by engaging people in experiences of sculpture and nature
simultaneously." Visitors to the Laumeier Sculpture Park - which
also boasts outdoor movies and an indoor gallery housed in an 1816
stone Tudor mansion - are unanimous in their approval of this goal,
with more than 300,000 people visiting the park every year. Over
and above being a wonderful picnic site, Laumeier Sculpture Park
offers visitors a fresh and exciting way to engage with the plastic
arts, and should not be missed.
