Experience Local Art and the Outdoors at the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden

Come explore the native plants and sculptures in the Cullen Sculpture Garden.

Looking for a breath of fresh air near Tiburon Apartments? Finding the perfect retreat can be a great way to reduce stress. But sometimes it’s fun to mix things up a bit. The Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden, also known simply as the Cullen Sculpture Garden, is an excellent way to both experience the local art culture of Houston and enjoy the delicate touch of the native environment.

About the Cullen Sculpture Garden

The Cullen Sculpture Garden is a great testament to the harmony within art and nature. Residents of Houston have sculptor Isamu Noguchi to thank for the impressive collection of sculpture and botany. Since opening in 1986, the property has grown to support a variety of artists and contemporary sculptors. The list includes Dan Graham and Louise Bourgeois.

The garden features a wide collection of artwork from both 20th-century and 21st-century sculptors. Architect Miles van der Rohe designed much of the park layout. So you can expect bold, modern designs scattered throughout the garden.

The Gardens

This is an excellent place to adventure alone or explore in a group. It’s absolutely worth scavenging the park to find every sculpture. Also, you’ll find yourself immersed in flourishing local plant life. Expect native Texan trees, bright flowers, and tall reeds of bamboo, too. Everything comes together to create a beautiful harmony of art and reality.

To this day, the park is open to the public with free admission. Guests are welcome to tour the entirety of the garden, which spans over one and half acres. To make the most of your visit, check online for current hours of operation. Parking is shared with the Museum of Fine Arts across from the sculpture garden.

Residents of our Tiburon Apartments community are a short 25-minute drive from this incredible garden of artwork.
