About I-Park Foundation, Inc.
I-Park is a stimulating environment in which to work and grow. Sited on 30 acres within a 450-acre nature preserve, I-Park is both an open-air and closed-laboratory for individual creative pursuits in the visual arts, music composition/sound art, creative writing, the moving image, and architecture/landscape design.

I-Park’s quiet, retreat-like environment allows artists to experiment with new ideas, conduct research, and undertake aesthetic investigations while developing existing projects and starting new ones. The organization’s rich, varied landscape has long inspired a special interest in site-responsive, environmental art, to which many of our artists have been drawn.

From insights developed in the laboratory setting, I-Park also develops and sponsors specially-themed cross-disciplinary projects of cultural significance, and brings these discoveries to light in the public domain.
