Sculptures

Throughout its history, artists have been drawn to the Djerassi Program’s powerful landscape and have created sculptures and other works that respond to the place and are reflective of the artist’s experience living on the ranch. We allow the property to be an extension of the studio and permit the inspired artist to work with and in the environment. In some cases, a piece is conceived and constructed specifically for its place. Most works are temporal; they have an inherent lifespan that depends on their material and method of construction. Over the years many works have been placed on the land and many have come and gone. About 80 pieces are currently on site; all are evolving with time and the elements. Their presence is testament to the artist’s creative process.

Each year, from April through September, the Program offers hikes of its property and many of the artworks. Reservations are required.
