Download a Printable Tips Sheet

PICK UP a Park Map from the kiosk located near the upper parking lots at the Main Entrance to the Park. More information about Laumeier’s events and programs is available at the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center during regular building hours.

CONNECT with Laumeier’s Art + Nature Guide, Nature Trail Scavenger Hunt and Site/Sound Project online.

CHECK OUT a book from the Bring Me A Book shelf in the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center during regular building hours to enjoy during your visit to the Park.

RUN + SKIP on the grass—but be sure to walk indoors and on trails and stairs.

FIND our recommended Sculpture Interaction Guidelines online. Do not climb any artworks, unless otherwise noted on a sculpture’s object label.

LOOK at the artworks from different angles:

  • Crouch or lie down
  • Stand far away and up close
  • Circle around

ASK questions to encourage discussion:

  • What do you see?
  • What do you think it means?
  • How does it make you feel?

MOVE your body to imitate the shapes of the sculptures!

INVENT your own creative titles for the artworks before reading the object labels.

DRAW what you see. Sketchbooks are encouraged!

TAKE A BREAK at the benches and picnic tables located throughout the Park. Public restrooms and water fountains are located in the Museum Circle, Way Field and Emerson Children’s Sculpture Garden, and in the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center during regular building hours.

BRING the conversation home:

  • What sculpture did you like the most?
  • Did you learn about a new material?
  • What new projects can you create a home now?
