The Hawryluk Collection of Art in Nature will be a new series of public art in the Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park at Newfields, thanks to a $3 million gift from philanthropist Kent Hawryluk.

These sculptures will welcome visitors to physically explore them. “Oracle of Intimation,” pictured above, will have an opportunity for Hoosiers to climb through its windows and onto the roof.

“This is Not a Refuge” by Pakistan-born, Indy-based artist Anila Quayyum Agha will be a shelter reflecting the displacement of refugees from all over the world. It will also incorporate recordings of over a dozen immigrants in the Circle City as they tell their stories.

The last piece, “The Pollination Pavilion,” is by Catskills-based artists Mark Dion and Dana Sherwood, based on the theme of flowers and birds. The 21.5-ft-tall gazebo is designed to attract pollinators and will have a sofa at its center for visitors to lounge on and observe nature.

Starting in June of this year, you’ll have free access to the large-scale sculptures from the “Home Again” exhibition in the center of the park.
