Images of The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden Opened by the New Orleans Museum of Art in November 2003 this five acre garden adjacent to the museum in City Park
was designed to display a permanent collection of sculptures by twentieth and twenty-first century European, American, Latin American,Israeli and Japanese artsts. The sculptures are installed in a beautiful site amongst meandering footpaths and pedestrian bridges, reflecting
lagoons, Spanish moss laden live oak trees, mature pines and magnolias and camellias. The beloved Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden has reopened to the eager citizens of New Orleans. The public is once again able to relax and walk along the meandering footpaths in the Garden, which is home to fifty-three sculptures. Well worth a drive on a lazy afternoon.
