Our Approach

Sowing the seeds for a deeper understanding of the power of nature as a healing space for individuals and communities

American Visionary Art Museum

As part of enhancing an existing sacred space which includes a meditation and sculpture garden in American Visionary Art Museum’s courtyard, TKF partnered with AVAM to add a cascading, illuminated water element that incorporates 10 large, 2-foot tall sculptural stone heads by Ted Ludwiczak. The Museum’s outdoor garden is free, open and well used by the community and the addition of a water feature, a bench and journal takes the garden to the next level in creating a truly unique space. The space and the American Visionary Art Museum represent “out of the box” ideas and are the most open in every sense of the word. There is a great opportunity for use by the greater community, staff and museum visitors from literally around the globe.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
