Sculpture Collection

Sculpture Collection

One of the most significant collections in the nation.

The Sculpture Park features significant works of art within a variety of natural settings connected by waterways, meandering paths, lawns, meadows and quiet walkways. Although sculpture is found across the Meijer Gardens campus, more than 50 major works by masters such as Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Louise Bourgeois, Mark di Suvero, Richard Serra, Roxy Paine, Ai Weiwei and others are featured in this area.

Marshall Fredericks Collection

This group of bronze sculptures was of critical importance to Fred Meijer who began his philanthropic role as a collector with Marshall Fredericks. In total, 29 sculptures, including figurative groupings, were gifted to the organization that became Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in 1995. They are the foundation of the sculpture collection of Meijer Gardens.
