A Contemporary Sculpture Park nestled in the Forest
What is the “Domaine du Muy”?
Imagine a 12-ha park nestled in a wild, unspoiled Mediterranean forest. Following a 2km path (about 45 min’ walk), the visitors are surprised to find 37 giant sculptures, proof of human presence in a place where it is the least expected! The art collector and philanthropist Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand, founder of the park, wanted artists to exhibit their artwork in a natural stunning site… and his dream came true! Artwork meet the Nature in a stunning way.
The visitors can admire a wild range of artwork, including famous deceased artists such as Niki de Saint-Phalle or Sol LeWitt, but also emerging artists such as Claudia Comte. Some sculptures are lent to the park by galleries and art collectors, but most of them were created to be exhibited in situ.
Domaine du Muy’s features
Opened in 2015, the sculpture park is conceived as an ever-evolving open air gallery, with new commissions added as existing works are sold. In 2016, gardens designed by the landscape artist Louis Benech were added in the park.
The Domaine du Muy Sculpture Park is ranked on top 5 of the “5 fabulous art destinations to visit on the Côte d’Azur” by Artnet magazine.
