Nature and Art Come Alive
A visit to the Sculpture Park begins at the outdoor Welcome Area where you can find information about our 27 acre park and the sculptures currently on view. None of the outdoor sculpture at Abington Art Center is permanent. The artists are invited to respond to the landscape with semi-permanent, temporary and ephemeral sculptures. Each year a new season “opens” in June with new Sculpture Park installations and, no matter when you visit, mother nature contributes to the artwork.
Environmental issues and images run deep in AAC’s Sculpture Park. The woodland landscape lends itself to the development of sculpture that comments on human impact on the environment, reveals the cycles of nature, and uses natural materials. Every visit to the Sculpture Park is different based on the light, the weather and the seasons. It takes about 1 hours to visit the entire park. Most paths are easy to navigate, a few are temporary or can be more challenging depending on your shoes. Signs will help you along the way.
AAC’s Sculpture Park welcomes everyone from school children and families to art enthusiasts and tourists. The Sculpture Park has been recognized on the national level with public project grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Pew Charitable Trusts, the Andy Warhol Foundation, and the MidAtlantic Arts Foundation.
