Join us on a visit to Sculpture Fields!

Any and all art exhibited publicly has an impact far beyond its borders. Sculpture is a universal language that becomes an expressive exercise with worldwide dialogue. Visit a former brownfield exhibiting 40+ large-scale international sculptures creating the largest free Sculpture Park in the Southeast. A group guided tour has been arranged for all participants. Please wear comfortable shoes for this 1.5 mile walk through.

In 1911 Mrs. Mary Thayer Montague, widow of T.G. Montague, donated 49 acres of pristine land to be used as a park to the City of Chattanooga. During the 1940s the park was misused as a construction landfill, and in later years it was used for various recreational activities including kite competitions, motocross racing and softball tournaments. The park was shut down in 2003 due to environmental concerns. It had become a brownfield site. The idea of a sculpture park was envisioned in 2006 and a grassroots effort led by internationally renowned sculptor John Henry kicked off. In 2012 Sculpture Fields received its 501c3 non-profit determination and a 40-year lease was signed with City of Chattanooga to develop Sculpture Fields on 33 acres of Montague Park. Since its reopening in 2016, Sculpture Fields at Montague Park has become the largest sculpture park in the Southeast and one of a Chattanooga’s premier tourist destinations. The park brings an international flair to a city already known as a bastion of appreciation for pivotal local and national historic and cultural events. Sculpture Fields adds to the legacy of our City’s forward-thinking pioneers that enhances the cultural life of the community.
