The Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park, lauded as one of the top ten outdoor sculpture parks in the world, presents significant large-scale public art, inspiring visitors to experience art and nature in new and unexpected ways. This museum-in-the-prairie is a free public resource for the community. Here, you are invited to explore the connection of art and nature, where wonder emerges around every corner.

Trailblazing visionaries, advocates, and supporters bring the three pillars of the park’s mission to life—art, conservation and education. Sculpture, Wine, and Dine guests and the event’s generous sponsors—including lead sponsor BMO Harris Bank, Bimba Manufacturing, Mesirow Financial, First Midwest Bank, Country Financial, Capital Strategies Investment and social media sponsor AT & T—are investing in the future growth of the park and its community education programs, like Outdoors@theNate, a S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) tour infused with art.
