Museum of Outdoor Arts

Posted on December 18, 2018

The Museum of Outdoor Arts Marjorie Park renovation focuses on improving the overall aesthetics of the site while providing an artistic approach to the regional detention pond that complements the primary function of the park as an outdoor museum.

The design considers performances prior to Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater events as program elements in the boardwalk stage area, which offers a variety of seating and overlook areas all oriented to the stage.

The overall botanical approach to the design can be broken down into four distinct yet cohesive typologies; traditional, native, whimsical and woodland.

The two plazas and main walk take a traditional approach with the detention basin and boardwalk providing native elements. An English Garden — whimsical in nature — accompanies the Alice in Wonderland Sculpture collection that is highlighted along the West and North meandering walk.

The Lion’s Den area ties in woodland elements while providing views out onto the rest of the park for users accessing the Fiddlers Green Amphitheater entrance. Ample lighting of sculptures and pathways provide night interest for park users and patrons exiting Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater after events.
