Located in the 120-acre grounds of Bonnington House, just outside Edinburgh, Jupiter Artland is an outdoor sculpture park featuring major works specially commissioned from leading sculptors and land artists who have worked on-site to create a strong relationship with their surrounding environment. The artists include Turner prize nominees Nathan Coley and Jim Lambie, as well as Cornelia Parker, Anish Kapoor, Anthony Gormley and Andy Goldsworthy. The sculpture park opens to the public during the summer months, and places a strong emphasis on education, with a programme of activities for families, adults and groups.
