“a fine arts district”

Noted American landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh immediately appreciated the site’s serendipitous qualities produced from past neglect. It enjoys rolling topography because it was once a landfill. Mature trees were likely planted to hide the dump and their lofty canopy is the result of aggressive pruning to clear unsightly underbrush. The water element is a retention pond for runoff from acres of adjacent Stadium parking. The fortuitous evolution of this Notre Dame site from historic disregard to future natural beauty suggested the overarching theme for both park and inaugural exhibition: Reclaiming Our Nature.  This refers not only to sculptures selected to celebrate the natural environment, but also to others acquired to acknowledge humankind’s universal desire for spiritual transcendence.
