16 acres of garden walks make an amazing backdrop for an eclectic mix of sculptures and artworks of all shapes, sizes and materials. Walk from one secret space to another and be surprised by what's hidden behind various types of planting. Local landscapers have created individual tableaux, internationally acclaimed artists are exhibited within complementary environments to show the sculptures off... More

If you are in need of peace and relaxation - this is the place! There is an Asian bell to ring to get you in the mood. The gardens with sculpture are all different, some circular and long and rectangular - I particularly liked the sculpture of a woman doing a somersalt by Eric Frischl, there is a pond and... More

The 16 acres of garden and sculpture are breathtaking. There is a design surprise every time you turn a corner. If you go on a weekday, you can see the art indoors as well as outdoors.

We stumbled upon this place during a recent weekend in the Hamptons with my husband and our son (4 years old). It was beyond my greatest expectations, and I'd say it is on par with Storm King, which is among the great monumental contemporary sculpture gardens in the U.S. First rate work by a vast selection of important, iconic artists....

A landscaped sculpture garden surrounding Jack Lenor Larsen's East Hampton home. I am so thankful that we were able to schedule a visit to this beautiful sculpture garden.
