Climb the stairs on the east side of Walker Landing to discover a delightful hidden gem: the museum’s East Terrace and Switchback. Carved out of the ravine face and surrounded by towering trees, the East Terrace features Celeste Roberge’s sculpture Chaise Gabion and a long, zig-zag trail up the steep hillside to the colonnade at the museum’s main entrance. This trail provides a lovely variety of blooms in the spring, including Cherokee Princess dogwoods, Virginia Bluebells, and Sunshine Selections Lenten Rose hellebores, as well as Robyn Horn’s redwood sculpture Already Set in Motion.
