Whether located in the heart of a metropolis such as Chicago or on sprawling fields in the countryside, sculpture parks and gardens have become increasingly popular destinations for art and nature lovers alike. These art parks offer visitors a unique opportunity to interact with large-scale works designed for quiet contemplation in natural landscapes. Art Parks is the first comprehensive guide to North America's most important outdoor sculpture parks. Parks are divided into chapters thematically and by region, with four maps that locate parks within each geographic area.

Each of the fifty-seven locations, from large-scale parks in the countryside to small urban gardens and corporate sculpture collections, is described in detail and beautifully photographed. This handy guide features works by Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Olafur Eliasson, Alberto Giacometti, Andy Goldsworthy, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, and Richard Serra, among others. An appendix provides capsule summaries of forty six additional parks. With its flexibind format, Art Parks is equally at home in the traveler's backpack or on the sculpture lover's side table.


Francesca Cigola is an Italian architect and writer based in New York City.
