Summer trips: Guidebook takes you to America's sculpture gardens
Art and nature lovers planning a summer trip might want to check out the new "Art Parks" by Francesca Cigola (Princeton Architectural Press, 2013) for itinerary ideas. The volume is the first comprehensive guide to America's outdoor art spaces and features 57 locations, from snug urban settings in New York to a Chicago rooftop to rolling countryside in Northern California. Each sculpture garden or park is described in detail and includes a list of artists whose work is featured. The guide is organized according to theme ("Leisure Spaces," "Learning Spaces" and "Collectors Spaces"), supplemented by maps and an appendix covering 46 more sculpture parks.

The Museum of Outdoor Arts seeks to make art a part of daily life by locating large-scale pieces throughout the city. In 2000 the MOA opened a location in the Englewood Civic Center, adding such kinetic works as Lin Emery's "Duo," above.
