“modern and contemporary sculpture”

Open to the public since October 20, 2003, the Nasher Sculpture Center is one of the few institutions in the world devoted to the exhibition, study, and preservation of modern sculpture.  Conceived as a serene urban retreat for the enjoyment of modern art, the Sculpture Center is the new home of the renowned Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection of modern and contemporary sculpture. The collection – which numbers more than three hundred sculptures together with twentieth-century paintings and drawings – rotate in thematic installations throughout the Center’s seamless blend of indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces: an elegant, light-filled 55,000 ft2 building designed by Renzo Piano and a spacious garden created by Peter Walker.Special exhibitions drawn from other sources are presented, contributing to the Center’s mission of examining as thoroughly as possible the primary forces shaping the history of sculpture since the late nineteenth century.  The Sculpture Center complements its ongoing rotation of exhibitions with a variety of public programs and scholarly and educational initiatives.  Through successive installations, audiences encounter the collection’s remarkable breadth as well as its deep strengths and the exciting ways that it connects the creative energy of those artists represented to our daily lives. Additional amenities include a gift shop, an auditorium opening to the outdoors, and a café overlooking fountains and the garden.

We loved the art and exhibits but the staff were exceedingly rude and hostile. If you bring children be prepared to be scolded and scowled at for even leaning on the walls without art or exhibits.
