ABOUT US

JUPITER ARTLAND


Jupiter Artland is a contemporary sculpture park located just outside Edinburgh. Founded in 2009 by philanthropist art collectors Robert and Nicky Wilson, Jupiter has grown into one of Scotland’s most significant arts organisations and was nominated for ArtFund’s Museum of the Year in 2016. Set over 100 acres of meadow, woodland and five indoor gallery spaces, Jupiter Artland is home to 35 permanent site-specific sculptures from artists including Charles Jencks, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker and Antony Gormley, as well as a seasonal programme of exhibitions and events.

At the heart of everything we do is our ground-breaking learning programme, offering free visits for nurseries, schools, colleges, universities and community groups. This is subsidised by paid for classes, workshops and events, ticket sales and donations. To date we have welcomed over 25,000 learners to Jupiter Artland free of charge.

In 2018 Jupiter Artland celebrated our tenth anniversary by commissioning two new site-specific artworks, from Phyllida Barlow and Joana Vasconcelos and launching ORBIT Youth Council, powered by Jupiter Artland. For more information on ORBIT, visit www.orbitproject.co.uk
