What is the Museum of Outdoor Arts? Where is it located and what does the organization offer for its patrons?
The Museum of Outdoor Arts is a private operating foundation 501c3 non-profit organization and maintains a collection of outdoor art at various locations in Greenwood Village and Englewood. Some of the art is installed in publicly accessible areas. Most of our collection is housed at our private sculpture park, Marjorie Park. In total, there are over 90 outdoor pieces on view. Marjorie Park is only open during events, scheduled tours and by appointment. This park also is connected to Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre and is accessible to all ticket holders during concerts. We also have art located in public spaces around Fiddler’s Green Circle adjacent to Marjorie Park, some sculpture is placed on a temporary basis, while other sculpture is permanent. We also maintain a few sculptures in Greenwood Village’s Westlands Park and in front of Club Greenwood. Finally, we have about 30 artworks in public places located at the City of Englewood. Most of this art is located in and around the Englewood Civic Center and the business district on S. Broadway between Yale and Hampden.
