JSP Community Project

Josephine Sculpture Park Project

In 2020 Inside Out Landscape Design partnered with Josephine Sculpture Park to create a landscape design and living sculpture that incorporates native host and pollinator plants. The plant installation for this plan was completed in 2022. This literal living sculpture, Metamorpho-Nest, will evolve to be interactive as well as beneficial to both wildlife and humans. It is the first of its kind for JSP and it is the largest community donation to date by Inside Out. If you would like to visit the new installation, it is located in the vicinity of the outdoor stage and amphitheater near the artist barn. Not only will it evolve in size and shape over time, but blooms and leaf changes will occur throughout each season. So revisit the site in person or online often to see what has developed!

This living sculpture includes 17 types of trees and shrubs which were selected for their host potential. We also incorporated grasses, sedges, and 16 different perennials into a seed mix that will grow along with the trees and shrubs. Human areas are clearly marked with stone-lined paths and nests.
