DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park

DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum augmented its position as the region’s foremost presenter of modern and contemporary sculpture by adopting an ambitious program of expansion and continuous renewal. Today, the Sculpture Park encompasses 35 acres of beautiful rolling woodlands and lawns, and is the largest park of its kind in New England. The Sculpture Park provides a constantly changing landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern and contemporary sculpture and site-specific installations. The Park hosts more than 60 works, the majority of which are on loan to the Museum. DeCordova’s Sculpture Terrace serves as the region’s first open air gallery for exhibitions by nationally recognized sculptors.
DeCordova attracts more than 100,000 visitors from New England and tourists from around the world to its campus each year and enrolls approximately 2,000 students of all ages in its studio art program. DeCordova’s School features one of the largest non-degree granting studio art programs in New England. Educational programming at deCordova is recognized for providing many beneficial interpretive and outreach activities both on-site and to regional schools. Through its partnership with the Lincoln Nursery School, deCordova is currently the only art museum in the country to host an on-site pre-school program. DeCordova also plays a critical role in preserving today’s regional art for future generations. With more than 3,400 works in its holdings, deCordova features an important permanent collection of New England contemporary art.
In 2010 deCordova entered a Strategic Planning Process with an established strategic goal to become one of the nation’s preeminent sculpture parks within the next decade. The strategic planning process defines a road map for achieving that goal over the next five years and will result in a long-range plan that will better articulate the institution’s highest aspirations, delineate its programmatic priorities, and outline an implementation plan.
