In the past two years Frederik Meijer and his curator Joe Becherer have assembled a significant private collection of large outdoor sculpture, which is available for public viewing at the Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids. This beautiful book presents more than 100 color illustrations, with details of many of the sculptures within the collection. Recognized by both the art world and the general public, this garden has a diverse landscape of artwork from sculptors such as Rodin, Fredericks, Haring, di Suvero, Moore, Maillol, Hepworth, Dine, Haring, and others. Using more well known materials such as bronze and stainless steel as well as unusual materials like industrial porcelain, the artists provide the garden with many exciting visuals that the book will allow readers to bring home. A brief history describes the development of the sculpture park. Biographies of the artists whose art grace this private collection are included, which serves to broaden the viewer's understanding of the pieces. Attention is given both to the artists' development of their craft and to the part each sculpture plays in the garden as a whole.
