Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park
Here at theNate (Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park) you will find a collection of 31 master works (soon to be 32 with new donations/acquisitions!) of large-scale sculpture situated within 100 acres of prairie landscape.
This “museum-in-the-prairie” is open for public viewing 365 days a year, from dawn to dusk, and is free of charge – even parking on the campus of Governors State University is free! GSU and theNate are connected to Chicago’s Millennium Park Metra Station by the Metra Electric Line; an 8 minute walk from the University Park Metra Station to GSU’s campus and theNate will begin to reveal the beauty of the prairie and the outdoor sculpture collection.
