“After a very successful inaugural event season in 2021, we are excited to be able to bring our patrons and community members even more programming in 2022,” said MOA Executive Director, Cynthia Madden Leitner. “It has been really heartwarming to see the community embrace Marjorie Park as an arts asset, and it further galvanizes MOA’s presence in the community and mission of ‘making art a part of everyday life’.”
The park is named after Marjorie P. Madden, who co-founded the Museum of Outdoor Arts in 1981 with her husband, commercial real-estate developer, John W. Madden Jr., and their daughter, Cynthia Madden Leitner. In March 2022, MOA announced the relocation of its headquarters from Englewood to Marjorie Park, which will take place this June.
Marjorie Park features more than 40 permanent artworks, most of which are sculptures. A labyrinth-like hardscape feature, designed after the seven petal vesica, serves as the grand centerpiece of the 2.1-acre park. Other park features include stadium grass seating, a lion’s den sculpture walk, kinetic sculptures, and a life-size bronze sculpture series of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by sculptor Harry Marinsky.
