Sheldon Museum of Art Sculpture Garden

The art at the Sheldon Museum of Art is not only contained in the beautiful Philip Johnson building. In fact, one of the wonderful features of the Sheldon Museum is the sculpture garden. Across the campus you will find amazing pieces of sculpture and public works. I thoroughly enjoyed my walk across the beautiful campus to find all the artwork I have attached to this post!

The Nasher Sculpture Center opened in October 2003 and was on my wish list of places to visit while in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area. It was the first institution in the world dedicated to modern and contemporary sculpture with a collection of significant work to the genre of sculpture. Filling an entire block in downtown Dallas, in the heart of Dallas’ growing Arts District, The Center features approximately 25 large-scale sculptures from Nasher Collection on view in the Garden at one time.
