Sculpture Garden

Enjoy the stunning beauty of sculpture on your daily walk.

We like to call it the RiverSpring dilemma: Where do you cast your gaze first? To the sweeping view of the Hudson River? The natural wonders of the Palisades? Or to the dozens of stunning works of the Sculpture Garden?

Experience this beautiful dilemma for yourself. Come stroll through our rich Sculpture Garden featuring 47 works from both local and international artists. It includes works by Herbert Ferber, Menashe Kadishman, Reuben Nakian, Marsha Pels, and Joel Perlman, among others.

The outdoor sculpture has been central to the Art Collection since the late 1960s and is the only sculpture garden in the Bronx. The collection features works in a range of materials from metals to natural elements and in an assortment of styles from figurative to abstract. Then, if you still have time, tour the Derfner Judaica Museum.

Please check out our Online Collections Database of Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale.
