The AmericaJR Web Team recently visited the iconic Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Mich. Opened in 1995, Meijer Gardens quickly established itself in the Midwest as a major cultural attraction jointly focused on horticulture and sculpture. Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park includes a large tropical conservatory, an 8-acre Japanese garden, major works of modern and contemporary sculpture on the grounds and indoors, along with a series of outdoor gardens and nature trails. Meijer Gardens has continued to grow their permanent collection of sculpture from major figures in Modern and Contemporary art while building additional structures for indoor and outdoor gardens.
Visit the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park at 1000 East Beltline Ave NE, Grand Rapids, Michigan. For more info and tickets, go to http://www.meijergardens.org/
