Sculpture Garden

The colorful gardens of the Evergreen Arboretum and Gardens create an outdoor museum, showcasing sculptures by some of the Northwests most noted artists. Styles range from modern to abstract, whimsical to traditional. There is a permanent collection of pieces both large and small, as well as a rotating outdoor exhibit. Our permanent collection includes the Arboretum entry gateway formed by the signature purple columns by Little and Lewis, topped with a metal arbor by Rex Lukinich as well as large pieces such as Fibonacci, a metal water feature by Pam Hom, Clarity, a glass and stainless steel sculpture by Merilee Moore, Cascade Evening, a stone sculpture by Reg Ackright, and Circle of Life, steel and glass sculpture by Shirley Erickson and our most recent acquisition Roundness of the Horizon the Fossil by Katzutaka Uchida. Enter through the signature gateway and wander through the Arboretum to enjoy the permanent collection and the rotating outdoor exhibit. Sculptures in metal, glass and stone are placed throughout the individual gardens. The outdoor exhibit changes from year to year, and various artists and styles are represented.
