We welcome groups to take self-guided tours of the park at any time. Exhibition materials can be found at the main (south gate) entrance. We also offer artist-led tours and private workshops for those groups interested in engaging artists in their park experience. Fill out a tour request form here.

Artist-led Tours
These tours focus on the accessibility of contemporary sculpture while contextualizing the ideas behind viewing art in an outdoor setting. Past and present exhibiting Socrates Sculpture Park artists conduct the tours through open discussions with the visiting group. Please reserve artist-led tours at least three weeks in advance of visiting the park.

Private Workshops
Conducted in the park or in schools, these workshops are customized to meet the interests of groups ranging from special needs to younger children and adults. Workshops include basic introduction to sculpture making while addressing themes relating to environmental issues in art-making. Workshops offered are taught by exhibiting artists and are inspired by the exhibition on view.
