Where Artwork Grows

The Leona M. and Jacob E. Nyenhuis Sculpture Garden complements the Kruizenga Art Museum, itself designed as a piece of interactive sculpture, by extending the celebration of art beyond the building’s walls to the grounds that gently surround it. Dedicated on Saturday, Oct. 14, during Homecoming Weekend, the space features five works in the Abstract Modernist tradition, with room for more.

The garden is named for lead donors Dr. Jacob Nyenhuis, who is provost emeritus and professor emeritus of classics and interim director of the A.C. Van Raalte Institute, and Leona Nyenhuis for their many years of service to Hope.
