The grounds at the Pepsico Offices in Purchase, NY could easily rival the Guggenheim with the amount of architectural planning and meticulous detail that is easily seen while exploring the Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens. It gives the feel of a mystical place; a fairy ring in the forest at midnight where you actual witness them dancing. Victor Salmones’s “The Search” requires a visit to the Stream Garden and for anyone who has wished for a one of these, you can simply visit from 7am-7pm everyday from April to October and 7am-5pm from November to March.

Visitors come from all over to view the sculptures themselves, stroll through the grounds and even take a jog with a friend. Even driving the loop offers a unique peak at all of the architectural landscaping that was required in the presentation of these beautiful and often astounding pieces of artwork. There is no excuse not to visit, it’s free all the time and open year round. During my next visit I plan to explore the paths “less traveled”, visit the courtyard and bring lunch to share and eat at the Picnic Grove!
