On International Sculpture Day (April 25, 2020), the enhanced Ann & Monroe Carell Jr. Family Sculpture Trail reopens following a 15-month renovation. Originally established in 1999, the approximately 1.5-mile trail is home to 10 permanent contemporary sculptures, many commissioned specifically for Cheekwood’s woodland trail setting. Visitors will experience a new trailhead entrance and wayfinding and carefully curated horticulture experiences intended to create seasonality within the space, diversify the landscape, and complement the sculptures. The once singular loop has been divided into two loops, one that is paved for accessibility and lighted for nighttime viewing. The design process is led by Nashville-based Hawkins Partners, Inc. The renovations are made possible by a $5 million lead gift to The Cheekwood Campaign from the Ann and Monroe Carell Foundation.
