Outdoor Art & Sculpture to See this Spring

From architectural focal points and outdoor sculpture parks to a curious delve into a world of creativity, we’ve included a few of our favourites for you to pick from this season. And why pick just one, see how many you can tick off the list - we know we will be!

Jupiter Artland, Scotland

As the weather warms up, let that fresh Spring air guide you outside to enjoy an altogether different creative experience just outside of Edinburgh, Jupiter Artland. Set over a majestic 100 acres of meadow, woodland and indoor gallery spaces, this unique setting hosts over 30 permanent sculptures from artists Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley to name a few. Visitors can also enjoy a seasonal programme of highly imaginative curated exhibitions and events from both emerging and established artists, making this location, one to feature on your ‘must visit’ list.

“Founded in 2009 by philanthropist art collectors Robert and Nicky Wilson, Jupiter Artland has grown into one of Scotland’s most significant arts organisations, with an international reputation for innovation and creativity”.

The Norman Foster designed Sainsbury Centre is one for all weathers with a host of events and exhibitions peppered on its calendar for you to immerse yourself in.

Outside in the grounds of the art museum is a 350 acre playground of art, architecture and natural beauty. The Sculpture features works from notable artists such as Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink and Lynn Chadwick which sits within a wide range of floral and fauna, ancient oaks and wildlife.
