A New Cultural Destination Dedicated to the Art of Alexander Calder

Dedicated to personal contemplation and reflection, Calder Gardens will spotlight the art and ideas of one of the twentieth century’s most influential artists, who happened to be a native Philadelphian. It will feature a building conceived by Pritzker Prize-winning design practice Herzog & de Meuron and gardens by internationally acclaimed Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf. Read more.

Calder Gardens is scheduled to open in 2025. Please join us in bringing this vision to life through a tax-deductible gift.
