Goldman-kuenz sculpture park
The Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park opened in 1993. Today, we are one of the premier destinations for large-scale outdoor sculpture in the Midwest. We currently feature 73 sculptures establishing the sculpture park as one of the largest in the Midwest.
Thoughtfully placed throughout the park’s 80 acres, we feature artists of international stature, including many local and regional artists. Some of the featured artists are John Kearney, Fletcher Benton, Alexander Lieberman, Chakaia Booker, Bob Emser, Deborah Masuoka, Tom Orr, Harry Gordon, Patrick McDonald, and Josh Garber.
In 1983, Cedarhurst commissioned its first outdoor sculpture, Cedarhurst One by Robert Youngman. The pale white, rectilinear column is suggestive of an archaeological sample and marks the entrance to the park, museum, and art center. In 1994, Cedarhurst commissioned Kimball by Chicago sculptor John Kearney. Constructed from obsolete automobile bumpers, Kimball the horse, has become an icon of the arts center and a visitor favorite.
The mission of the Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park is to promote an understanding and appreciation of contemporary sculpture for all people. The Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park presents the work of well-respected, career artists, as well as emerging sculptors. The sculpture park offers our communities and visitors an immersive art experience and the sculptures represent a variety of styles and media, including bronze, steel, stone, wood, concrete and mixed media.

Each information page also contains an embedded audio recording if you’d prefer to listen along!
Beginning at 27th Street and Richview Road (traveling east) you can now view 10 lighted sculptures (we’ve added lights to 3 more sculptures!) from your vehicle or from the sidewalk after dark! We encourage you to also drive/walk by during the day to compare the two views.
Visit Drive by Tour for a guide to the 10 sculptures complete with a brief description of the sculptures/artists, plus a Family Fun Quest bonus activity for each sculpture that you can complete at home!
