Andres Institute of Art

The trails leading to and from Potanipo Hill in Brookline are dotted with peculiar sculptures and exhibits, sourced from Bangladesh, Egypt and all the way to Lithuania and Greece. This innovative sculpture park was the brainchild of Paul Andres and sculptor John Weidman, and was founded in 1996. The placing of the unique sculptures in a natural habitat lend changing perspectives and backdrops with the turn of seasons. Some sculptures are changed periodically and are replaced by newer exhibits, whereas sometimes artists from over the world are invited to create permanent sculptures. Guided tours of the sculpture garden are available as well.
