Jupiter Artland

Located in the 80-acre grounds of Bonnington House, just outside Edinburgh, Jupiter Artland is an outdoor sculpture park featuring major works specially commissioned from leading sculptors and land artists who have worked on-site to create a strong relationship with their surrounding environment. The artists include Turner prize nominees Nathan Coley and Jim Lambie, as well as Anish Kapoor, Anthony Gormley and Andy Goldsworthy. The sculpture park opens during the summer months, and places a strong emphasis on education, with links to local primary and secondary schools and a programme of activities for school visits including workshops in a variety of artistic disciplines including sculpture, mosaics, photography and dance.
