The museum without walls showcases over 31 internationally recognized forms of contemporary art on a grassy area along the Detroit River. The works are by world-renowned artists such as Elisabeth Frink, an artist born in Suffolk and considered one of Britain's leading sculptors; Derrick Stephan Hudson, who created the piece depicting the mother elephant leading her two babies; and Yolanda van der Gaast, a native from Ontario who has made her mark on the culture of her city.
During the warmer weather seasons, the City of Windsor's Parks and Recreation offers Art Cart Tours, which are electric golf carts that accommodate five people to witness each sculpture in a leisurely fashion.
According to the Ontario Arts Council, the belief that the arts contribute significantly to the quality of life, cultural identity and social well-being of the city is their overall mission. With masterful additions to the community such as the Odette Sculpture Park, anyone traveling on the Trans Canadian railway will clearly observe that these values hold true within the district.
