Encounter major works by masters of contemporary sculpture at the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park.

Established 30 years ago, the park has grown into a major collection of 27 works that is set within the wild prairie swales of the Governors State University campus. Located just 34 miles directly south of Chicago's Loop business district and connected by a one-hour Metra train ride to the Millennium Park station, the park is easily accessible by train, automobile, or tour bus.

Events and programs which build an appreciation and understanding of contemporary sculpture and highlight the surrounding landscape are scheduled year 'round. Tours of the park are presented free of charge by dedicated docents and offer the opportunity for groups to encounter the work in a relaxed atmosphere.
