The Foundation is located on a 12-acre arboretum that features rare plants from around the world. Reservations must be made in advance for gallery tours.

FAMILY MUST-SEES: Artwork from different time periods, cultures and movements are paired in themed “ensembles.” Notable family faves: Room #11’s East Ensemble of imaginative shapes anchored by metal and iron pieces and Joan Miró’s Group of Women; Room #14’s North Ensemble of bird-themed works of art (count how many 2-D and 3-D birds you can find!); and Room #20’s South Ensemble, featuring the intricately carved, two-faced Yaure Mask.
