TAKING A HIKE
THROUGH LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK

We're lucky to have the fabulous 105-acre
Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis County . . .
home to 75 permanent outdoor installations
by internationally famous sculptors.

Some require a hike through trails
in the mostly wooded park,
including the original stone estate and abandoned pool
of the original donor, Mrs. Matilda Laumeier in 1968.

In addition to its permanent outdoor art collection,
Laumeier holds art fairs and outdoor evening concerts
throughout the year. Performers have included
B.B. King, James Brown, the Indigo Girls, Cowboy Junkies
and the renowned St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.

Some sculpture installations seem to stare back at you . . .

  2. I love the park but why ruin them with those... what are those things, I think they call them modern whatnots? At least let the kids climb them. Obviously I am not a fan. However, I like how you captured not only the objects but how the visitors react to them, especially that eyeball. They must have enucleated it from a giant!!!
