If you love art and the outdoors, you will love walking and seeing magnificent art up close and personal at the Sculpture Garden. Part of the New Orleans Museum of Art and within City Park, the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden centers around a lagoon to the north of the museum. The site opened in May 2019 and includes twenty-seven works by artists primarily working in the twenty-first century. Additional innovative architectural elements include the first canal link bridge of its kind in the United States, an amphitheater, a sculpture pavilion, and an outdoor learning environment.
The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden is home to more than 90 sculptures by renowned artists from around the world, set within a picturesque landscape of native Louisiana trees and plants.
