Why book a curator-led tour?

Jeffrey Rubinoff’s sculptures communicate through an abstract language of gesture, form, rhythm, and movement. For those unfamiliar with viewing abstract sculptural work, a curator-led tour can introduce you to the artist’s aesthetic and philosophical aims, as well as his intellectual context and history. Over the course of an approximately two-hour stroll, you will be given visual and aesthetic-analytical tools to help understand and enjoy the collection more deeply.

If you would like to propose an educational event, conference, course or workshop at the Park, please do get in touch with us. There are several other regularly scheduled events throughout the year, so advance planning is crucial.

Please note that the Sculpture Park is mandated only to host events that engage with the sculpture collection, or with concerns or values expressed by Jeffrey Rubinoff.

If your event is approved, the venue is provided free of charge. No additional funding is available for such events.

We require that all events are free to attend, or by donation for a non-profit or public service cause.

Music & Sonic Art in the park

 Each year we host public concerts during our summer opening season called Masters of Counterpoint. All the music performed employs a technique called counterpoint, which Rubinoff used extensively to compose his sculpture. For over 10 years, the Borealis String Quartet has been our resident string quartet performing exquisite music by Beethoven, Haydn, Shostakovich, and Schönberg.

In 2024 we begin a new chapter presenting additional music as well as sonic art.


Preparing for your visit

The exhibit covers ca. 100 acres. Self-guided visitors should plan a minimum of at least 45 minutes to see the whole park. Curator-led tours take around two hours.

The artist’s studio is open to visitors. However, as per the artist’s wishes, we recommend visiting the studio after seeing the sculptures.

The Hornby bus stops at the Sculpture Park. Please see Hornby Bus for a schedule.
