About Us

Building on its history as one of New England’s most beloved and stunningly-situated cultural institutions, and its growing reputation as a leading national presenter of contemporary sculpture and art, deCordova is well on its way to its goal of becoming a clear leader among this country’s best sculpture parks. Established in 1950 and located just 20 miles northwest of Boston, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is dedicated to fostering the creation and exploration of contemporary sculpture and art through a robust slate of rotating exhibitions, innovative learning opportunities, and a constantly changing landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern and contemporary sculpture and site-specific installations.

In March of 2010, deCordova acquired its first work by an international sculptor and continues to bolster the curatorial program by exhibiting high-quality, accessible art of nationally and internationally recognized artists indoors and out. To maintain its commitment to New England artists and emphasize the quality and vitality of the art created in this region, deCordova launched the deCordova Biennial in 2010 and the PLATFORM series in 2009.

Patrons of deCordova can enjoy year round activities in the Sculpture Park and Museum, including snowshoe tours, yoga in the park, curator and artist conversations, and many special talks, panels discussions, and events. Unique to deCordova, the Corporate Program provides area businesses the opportunity to support the institution and regional artists through membership initiatives and Art Loan options. DeCordova is also home to the only preschool embedded in a contemporary art museum in the United States.
