Artworks in the Sculpture Gardens

Discover inspirational works of art in Cornwall within our exotic and sub-tropical gardens.

Dramatic landscape and planting provide the backdrop to contemplative but inspirational artworks. More than twenty artists, including five members of the Royal Academy of Arts – James Turrell, Richard Long, David Nash, Peter Randall-Page and Tim Shaw – have interacted with the garden to create site-specific permanent works of art in Cornwall, that harmonise beautifully with the setting. The land also provides a forum for ever-changing temporary, or even ephemeral art in all its forms.

The concept is to have a balance of artwork and planting within a beautiful landscape – allowing room for all elements to flourish with the idea in mind that the number of artworks is kept limited but of high quality and presence.
