Laumeier Sculpture Park is a 116 acre venue for contemporary
media artists works. Sculptures are exhibited in a museum and outdoors
on landscaped lawns or woodland trails. Laumeier's stated mission is to
present contemporary sculpture that is created from and interacts with
the environment. Take some time away from virtual reality to visit.
There is no admission charge, except for special festival events.
A Blind Maquette Program is in place at the park. Thirteen sculptures
have touchable scale models nearby with interpretive
information in print and braille.
Laumeier hosts a contemporary art fair in May with over 100 artists,
various media, music & demonstrations. See below for a link to a list
of exhibits, events, camps and classes.
The park is located at 12580 Rott Rd. at Geyer Rd., Sunset Hills, (St.
Louis) Mo. 63127 U.S.A. (See map links below)

How can I get there?
Just a few minutes from Laumeier, right on the other side of I-44, is
Valley Conservation Center. The center is a wonderful place to
stroll along woodland trails in a wildlife protected area or
learn more about Missouri outdoors in the Nature Center building.
Make it an outstanding day by visiting both Laumeier and Powder Valley.
