MCAD Sculpture Garden


Established in 2011, the MCAD Sculpture Garden was developed in order to allow students to learn, experiment, and collaborate in the realm of public art.

The garden is filled with both permanent and rotating works created by MCAD students, alumni, faculty members, and invited artists. This space allows students the opportunity to work with professional public artists to design and fabricate high quality works for outdoor display. They learn to design from concept to installation, including the proposal process, model building, material finishing, and rigging.

Located on the south end of campus along 26th Street, the garden invigorates not only the MCAD campus, but also the Whittier neighborhood as a whole, allowing the community to experience and appreciate art in their everyday lives.
