Have you ever been to a sculpture garden? A sculpture garden is an outdoor space for the public enjoyment of three-dimensional art forms known as sculptures. The sculptures are featured within a variety of landscapes and natural settings. Some sculpture gardens also include gardens with flowers, shrubs, and trees.
A sculpture can be made from many different, durable materials: steel, concrete, glass, and plastic are among the most common. The sculptures are kept outside year round, so they must be able to withstand precipitation, heat, cold, or constant exposure to the sun.
Visitors to a sculpture garden are often pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of approaches to sculpture. Some sculptures are modern and abstract while other sculputures take on a more traditional form that resembles people or animals.
