Saint Francis Sculpture Garden is the nonprofit responsible for the planning, fundraising, and upkeep of the 11-acre Sculpture Garden pathway. The land is owned by the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids (on their beautiful Marywood Campus), and SFSG has a contractual agreement with them because the pathway is a hand-in-glove fit with the sisters' values of art, ecology, and prayer. Throughout the year, SFSG sponsors a Living Nativity, Blessing of the Animals, International Day of Peace, and planting commemorative flowers in conjunction with area hospices.
