My Daily Art

WAG Rooftop Sculpture Garden

For me, it’s the best rooftop garden in the city hands down.

On a bright spring day, hot summer evening, or fall afternoon, this expansive outdoor gallery at the WAG surprises and delights any visitor. It’s my go-to place to escape for a few moments during the day (including the winter when we usually have a few iglu constructed).

A long row of paper birch trees, a large pool with fountains (perfect to cool the feet), elegant terracing, and some unexpected views of the city, make for a splendid garden design.

Bringing everything together is a collection of bronze and stone sculptures (including choice works by Henry Moore, Eva Stubbs, Sorel Etrog, and Abraham Anghik Ruben).

And how many curators and preparators does it take to install a sculpture up here?  Ask Dr. Eckhardt or me – we would know.
