THE MISSION OF LOOKOUT SCULPTURE PARK

Lookout Sculpture Park, founded to provide services to artists and the public, seeks to cultivate international interaction, environmental amelioration and educational outreach. The visual arts are vital to society and artists have a responsibility to share their ideas and works with others. To serve that dynamic, Lookout Sculpture Park offers an artistic, intellectual and challenging experience to artists and the community. The Park's proximity to New York City and Philadelphia provides access to these remarkable centers of culture, while its rural setting allows artists to create works surrounded by nature in a supportive environment. Beyond Lookout Sculpture Park's mission in Pennsylvania, the Park also offers sculpture exhibitions and residencies in rural and urban environments around the world.
