Calder Gardens

Calder Gardens, a new cultural destination dedicated to the art of Alexander Calder, is scheduled to open in 2025 on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. Featuring a building conceived by Pritzker Prize-winning design practice Herzog & de Meuron and gardens by internationally acclaimed Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf, Calder Gardens will provide the public with a singular place for contemplation and reflection, as well as abundant opportunities for learning and community building through a schedule of inclusive public programs and special events. In what constitutes a new model for institutional sustainability and efficiency, the Barnes will provide administrative, operational, and educational programming support when Calder Gardens opens to the public.

Please join us in bringing this vision to life through a tax-deductible gift.
