The Sculpture Grounds · With over 90 sculptures woven throughout different gardens and courtyards, this en plein air art experience allows visitors to enjoy incredible large-scale contemporary sculpture on 4.5 beautifully landscaped acres. Visitors are encouraged to explore the grounds and interact with the works, perhaps turning kinetic elements or wandering through open pieces. On the property sits the home of artist Gilbert Boro and although the residence is not open to the public, Boro welcomes visitors to the "cafe" outside the house to take a rest, picnic and take in the sights.
(The "cafe" area is for picnicking. We do not serve food.)
Studio 80 · While visiting the grounds, step into Studio 80, the working studio of Gilbert Boro. Boro and studio assistants are often fabricating new works and are always welcoming to observers.
Gallery · Located on the second floor of the Studio, is the Studio 80 Gallery. Here, Boro displays a collection of his small scale works. Many of these are maquettes and studies for works on the property. All works in the Gallery and on site are for sale, prices are provided upon request.
