Mission Statement for the Sculpture Garden
The primary focus of the Sculpture Garden is to present thought provoking, quality exhibitions and related programs. Sculptures reflect a variety of media and represent the work of local, regional and national artists. As an extension of the community-based school of art, the Contemporary Sculpture Garden is committed to providing educational shows for our students, members and the diverse population of Central Florida. All exhibitions and lectures are free and open to the public.

Contemporary Sculpture Garden
The attractively landscaped Crealdé campus features the Sculpture Garden with more than 60 three-dimensional pieces of outdoor art on display year round. The collection represents over 40 Florida artists including internationally-renowned sculptors Johann and Kristin Eyfells, Cheryl Bogdanowitsch and Michael Galletta. The Garden is curated by Senior Faculty Member and Sculpture Instructor David Cumbie. The garden winds throughout the school's lakeside campus, and is free and open to the public. School groups and other civic organizations may arrange for a brief tour or discussion with the gallery staff by contacting the Crealde office.

Many of Central Florida’s most recognized artists and several international artists are represented in Crealdé's Sculpture Garden. Since the first dedication in 1997, many new works have been added and now with over sixty pieces, the original concept has been realized: to bring the art out of the gallery into the beautiful landscape; to create special niches and mysterious passages; to add to the creative environment and create a place to view contemporary art.

As for the artists involved, the outdoor environment presents the challenge of creating works durable enough to survive the elements of nature and the touch of the viewer’s hand. The broad cross-section of sculpture and the creative materials used make a unique document of sculptural history in the Central Florida area and testify to the present movements in art.

Without the gifts and long-term loans made by these participants, this show would have been impossible. I would like to acknowledge all of our generous friends that have helped us create this special place. I deeply appreciate the enthusiastic response by the sculpture community and the incredible contribution they have made to the cultural landscape of Central Florida. Thank you. ~ David Cumbie, Curator
