A seven-acre addition to the grounds, purchased in 1999 and opened to the public in 2014 with its inaugural exhibition, Steve Tobin: Steel Roots. Initially cut off from the rest of the property by a shopping center’s access driveway, it was eventually united with the rest of the sculpture garden and The Meadow was opened. The area was planted with meadow grass and wildflowers across the seven acres and on a newly constructed berm. More than 100 bald cypress trees were planted along the main path. Though they are young and slender now, over their lifespan, these trees could grow as tall as 125’ tall and six feet in diameter. Also included in this area are a set of dead locust tree trunks from trees that had to be cut down for a parking lot expansion. Their sculptural forms were sited here along with custom made metal brackets so that they can continue to stand as part of the landscape.
The Wildflower Berm
This selection of flowers is well suited for the northeast and includes 25 species including Blanket Flower, Cosmos, Phlox, and more. These flowers attract pollinators and people. We are excited to have this naturally wild and beautiful planting, which begins bloom in mid- to late- summer.
