JSP Temporarily Closes Today at Dusk April 2, 2020 Until Further Notice


April 2, 2020 

Announcement: JSP Temporarily Closed


Dear friends,


Thank you for supporting Josephine Sculpture Park – in the past, during this uniquely challenging time, and into the future. To do our part in controlling the spread of COVID-19, the Park will close to public visitors starting today at dusk, April 2, 2020 until further notice. This step is necessary to protect the safety and health of our visitors, volunteers, staff, and community.  


We ask that everyone do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by staying #HealthyAtHome. We will continue to provide activities that you and your family can do at home to stay connected with art and nature! 


Our virtual programs are available throughout the week on our social media (@josephinesculpturepark) and website: 



  • Self-Guided Night Sky Tour (monthly themed activities to explore the night sky)
  • First Sunday Self-Guided Nature Tour (monthly prompted walks & videos that connect you with nature)  
  • nARTure Tuesday (simple nature-based art activities you can do with supplies at-hand, available every Tuesday by noon)
  • Sculpture Saturday (short interactive videos that feature a sculpture in JSP’s exhibition, available every Saturday by noon)



We hope that you and your family enjoy our virtual programs. Please let us know what you think by sharing and commenting on social media – we want to hear from you!


We make the decision to temporarily close the Park grounds with confidence and compassion for the safety and health of all Kentuckians. We support and thank you for your efforts to take care of yourself and others. Please stay up to date on the latest recommendations for COVID-19 prevention at http://kycovid19.ky.gov/ and cdc.gov/coronavirus. We will continue to monitor developments and follow guidance from state and local authorities to determine when we can reopen.  


Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or requests at info[at]josephinesculpturepark.org or 502-352-7082. 


Be well, #TeamKentucky!
