The Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park is growing. Programs and events increase our attendance and support each year. Our outdoor presentation, permanent collection and changing exhibitions provide foci for encounters with art which simply cannot be compared to a museum visit. 

Educational outreach to young artists via tours of the park is just one way the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park influences the creative life of our region.
