Description:Socrates Sculpture Park is a laboratory for both artistic and social projects. For the artists who work here, the Park provides an opportunity to create work on a monumental scale that is unthinkable within the confines of a studio. For its neighbors, the Park provides a backyard community resource. That is a place where local residents work side-by-side with artists to create a haven for art and nature. Workshops and neighborhood mural projects extend the Park's activities into the surrounding community. Through community involvement the Park demystifies the creative process as well as increases the public's understanding of modern art.
