The Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park is as much a part of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art as the art it contains. This beautiful, four-season oasis in Kansas City is a destination for art and cultural activities, the perfect setting for picnics and photographers, a spot for family fun and pick-up games of football, and an inspiring place to practice yoga, take a walk, or lie in the sun.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the park, we're kicking off a six-month celebration. Be sure to join us for all the fun!
Celebrate the opening of the international exhibition The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky with performances by Haskell Indian Nations University Dancers, hands-on activities and demonstrations by artists.
