Permanent Collection & Exhibitions

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 Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Louise Bourgeois, Mark di Suvero, Richard Serra, Roxy Paine, Ai Weiwei and many others are featured in this area.

While these timeless pieces form the bedrock of the collection, Meijer Gardens also embraces the ephemeral, offering a vibrant roster of rotating exhibitions that push the boundaries of contemporary sculpture.

significant collections in the nation

Focused on established and emerging sculptors from the late 19th century to the present, this collection is international in scope. It has a critical focus on the leading masters and art historical movements of the Modern and Contemporary periods and was initiated in 1999. While a concentration of this collection is found in the Sculpture Park, works can be found across interior and exterior locations.

This group of bronze sculptures was critically important to Fred Meijer, who began his philanthropic role as a collector with Marshall Fredericks. Twenty-nine sculptures in total, including figurative groupings, were a gift to the organization that in 1995 became Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. These sculptures are the foundation of the Meijer Gardens collection.
This unique collection includes sculpture intended to complement or accentuate garden environments such as Lena Meijer Children’s Garden or Michigan’s Farm Garden. Largely a group of figurative works and frequently whimsical, these sculptures are meant to be illustrative—even didactic—for a general audience, including families and children.
