Scran had a great time meeting the educators at Jupiter Artland on Wednesday, and we hope to work with them in the future on projects with schools and colleges.
An outdoor sculpture park hosting site-specific works by internationally-renowned artists including Cornelia Parker, Andy Goldsworthy, Marc Quinn and Antony Gormley, Jupiter Artland is set in the grounds of Bonnington House just on the western outskirts of Edinburgh, owned since 1999 by Robert and Nicky Wilson. Their ambition to open a sculpture park rather like Ian Hamilton Finlay‘s “Little Sparta” was realised in 2010, and each year since then, new artists have been invited to create sculptures that are inspire by, and relate to, the gardens and grounds of Bonnington House. There are now 24 permanent outdoor sculptures on display, and covered gallery spaces in the courtyard host temporary exhibitions each year.
We currently host images of many of the artworks at Jupiter Artland on Scran, ideal for study pre- or post-visit, and there is a possibility we may host more images in the future. In the meantime, the grounds of Jupiter Artland are open until the end of September 2015, and will reopen next May with new artworks.
