Over 30 years in the making by the artist, the 200-acre Jeffrey Rubinoff Sculpture Park displays practically the entire lifetime output of sculptor Jeffrey Rubinoff.
Over 100 stainless and COR-TEN steel sculptures express Rubinoff’s ambition to address humanity’s relationship between natural history, war and the sacred through our aesthetic perception.
The Rubinoff sculpture collection
The Jeffrey Rubinoff Sculpture Park is the permanent display for over 100 Jeffrey Rubinoff sculptures. In addition to shaping the land over three decades to suit the presetnation of his lifes artistic output, he established the sculpture park society to ensure access to and interpretation of the collection. In addition to viewing the sculpture, much of the work of the park is to support the educational activities preserving the values the Rubinoff felt strongly that art had a role in cultivating.
Visit the Park
The park is open to the public from mid-july to mid-august each year.

Current information and news
Art Historian Dr. James Fox publishes The Art of Jeffrey Rubinoff
Jeffrey Rubinoff is one of the great sculptors in steel of the second half of the twentieth century. In the 1970s and ‘80s he exhibited widely in the United States and Canada alongside Anthony Caro, Mark di Suvero and George Rickey, among others. However, in the early 2000s Rubinoff withdrew from the art world altogether and concentrated on creating an extraordinary sculpture park on Hornby Island.
Dr. Maria Tippett publishes Sculpture in Canada: A History
Tippet provides an enlightening survey of sculpture in Canada, from prehistoric times to the present, including sculptor Jeffrey Rubinoff. Tippett considers the influence of the church, governments, and special interest groups on the work of sculptors, noting that the size and expense of large sculptures means that they may be more affected by cultural, economic, and political forces
