Art Park 2014

In 2014 Art Park Ordrupgaard opened with two artworks by the high profile contemporary artists Carsten Höller and Ryan Gander. The parks visitors can now experience a giant mushroom of three meter that rises among the park trees and a large glittering silver sphere that rests on the lawn.

Art Park Ordrupgaard features works of art by high profile contemporary artists. I opens very summer with contributes from one or more exciting artist(s) who displays their art in the park surrounding Ordrupgaard Museum. Art Park Ordrupgaard opened for the first time in 2013 with an installation by Jeppe Hein which is now a permanent part of the museum collection.
