The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, in the NE corner of Grand Rapids, Michigan, is a 125 acre campus that is laid out in a variety of areas for displaying the sculpture collection in a context of extensive plantings of trees and flowers, along with a number of charming water features. Entry into the gardens is through a large building that houses several conservatories for special plant environments, galleries, meeting rooms, etc. This photo gallery starts with pictures I took on my first visit there, in early October of 2010. The only camera I had with me was my point-and-shoot Canon G10 (with the noisiest sensor ever created). Still, I hope the pictures give you a flavor of some of the main features of this marvelous facility. There was a Chihuly exhibit of art glass mounted in the gardens, and pictures of those pieces are in a separate gallery. Voting was just finishing up for the Grand Rapids ArtPrize, billed as the largest prize for art in the world ($250,000 Grand Prize, and $450,000 total prize money). Some of the entries were available for viewing in a garden that lies just outside the main building, and is thus free to the viewing public. Pictures of those works appear in a separate gallery, also.
