Besthoff Sculpture Garden Tour
Sat, April 1st, 2017 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 2:00 PM on Saturday, repeating until Sat, May 27th, 2017
Join a docent for a guided tour of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden every Saturday in April and May at 2 p.m. The Sculpture Garden occupies approximately five acres in City Park adjacent to the museum. Atypical of most sculpture gardens, this garden is located within a mature existing landscape of pines, magnolias and live oaks. The design creates outdoor viewing spaces within this picturesque landscape. A reconfigured lagoon bisects the site and creates two distinct halves: a mature pine and magnolia grove adjacent to the museum, and a more open area of 200-year-old, Spanish moss-laden live oaks across the lagoon near the New Orleans Botanical Gardens. The Sculpture Garden has grown from its inception in 2003 to include 64 sculptures, most of them donated to NOMA by the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Foundation.
