Take a stroll through our light-filled atrium, with its 39 species of plants. Pause by the reflecting pool. Explore our sensory garden, featuring a collection of plant life you can touch and smell. Visit the Ford Foundation Gallery to see thought-provoking works of art. We hope your visit invites reflection and a sense of peace, alongside the urgency and action it is meant to serve.

Note: The Ford Foundation Gallery and garden will be closed for maintenance on Saturday, March 23. We apologize for the inconvenience.
