Franconia Sculpture Park in Min­nesota (located 45 min­utes north­east of the Twin Cities) is a “seedbed for big auda­cious unfet­tered cre­ation.” The 20-acre park supports a rotating collection of over 75 contemporary sculptures and reflects the creative talents of local, national, and international artists. It is FREE and open to the public 365 days a year.
Art in the Landscape is always inspiring to me. How about you?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    We have a similar place here in California, Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma (also free!). Have you been?

      Jennifer — No I haven’t been — but have heard and seen so much about it … it’s on the someday list.
