Overview

This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

Plan to spend the day here. It's is truly breathtaking. It's almost meditative. I wish I could have met the brilliant artist behind this place. I can't even fathom how he envisioned and/ or executed these phenomenal sculptures. I really can't wait to go back....More

Archeologists in the future will likely be scratching their heads over Opus 40. What was its purpose? Who built it? This makes it that much more interesting to know who made it and why. Almost maze-like, this sculpture park takes you through layer upon layer...More

Mr. Fite's vision for Opus 40 was impressive. The structures he built from the blue stone quarry are lovely and most amazingly, no cement or mortar was used. The grounds are beautiful but expected to see more statues and wish we could have seen the...More

Opus 40 is an amazing place. Earth art at its finest. The stone work is masterful. The only reason I didn't give the review 5 stars is because the porta potties were not the best. I did not know the park did not have facilities....More

Spent about an hour or so at this amazing outdoor art installation. You can walk around it, on it and view other sculptures in the semi-wooded areas. A short film describes the story; also there's a small museum. Very interesting.
