Laumeier Sculpture Park

Laumeier Sculpture Park is a living laboratory where artists and audiences explore the relationship between contemporary art and the natural environment. Founded in 1976, Laumeier is one of the first and largest dedicated sculpture parks in the country, making it an institution of international significance as well as a unique complement to the cultural landscape of the St. Louis region. Laumeier is a nonprofit, accredited art museum that operates in partnership with St. Louis County Parks. Programs are supported by the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the Regional Arts Commission, Missouri Arts Council and the Arts and Education Council of St. Louis. Laumeier presents 60 works of large-scale outdoor sculpture in a 105-acre park available free to the public year-round, and serves 300,000 patrons annually through temporary exhibitions, education programs, public events and sculpture conservation.

In 2009, Laumeier partnered with Lighthouse for the Blind-St. Louis to develop a series of bronze maquettes (cast scale models) for several artworks in the Permanent Collection, including a topographic orientation map of the Park, to help visitors with sight impairments navigate and enjoy the artworks in the Outdoor Galleries.
