Orońsko. Contemporary Sculpture Garden

The Orońsko contemporary sculpture garden was the first exhibition salon of the budding institution. A considerable part of the presented works had been created by foreign artists, invited to workshops as part of cultural exchange, especially between the Eastern block countries. The exhibition survived for 10 years, undergoing some changes in the meantime – new sculptures were added, and the old ones were gradually returned to the reclaimed parts of the park. In 1994, new arrangement concept was presented by Grzegorz Kowalski. The contemporary sculpture garden shows stone sculpture, objects made of bronze, steel, cast iron, wood and ceramics. Classical sculpture forms were supplanted with modern installation or examples of land art. The park collection consisted of 76 works. The sculpture garden is successively growing.
