The foundation of the International Directory of Sculpture Parks and Gardens was developed from the archive of Californian sculptor James Benbow Bullock. He generously donated the contents of his original directory (www.artnut.com) to Dr. Cartiere at Birkbeck, University of London to update and expand his legacy through her own research on sculpture parks and gardens. Many of the sculpture parks listed in this directory were visited either by Cartiere or Bullock. Dr. Cartiere has personally visited over 100 sites around the world.
With research support by Sarah B Davies, each entry has been updated and expanded and new parks and gardens have been added. This project is made possible through the generous support of the Birkbeck web support team and Barbara Harris who helped design this site.
We hope this site is useful to anyone who might enjoy sculpture in an outdoor environment including artists, collectors, curators, architects, urban designers, landscape architects, city planners, public art administrators, educators and garden enthusiasts.
