Head west to Lincoln and this former estate of Massachusetts merchant Julian de Cordova, which is now totally given over to displaying modern art. The original Italianate house is extended by a thoroughly modern newer building with towering gallery space, all of which houses some of the most stimulating, cutting-edge contemporary art in the area. The grounds extend the collection with giant, often interactive sculptures set among towering mature trees and rocky granite outcrops. Set on 30 acres, the museum and sculpture park comprise New England’s largest art park. Given the space within and without, the DeCordova is able to exhibit some of the largest area’s art pieces and installations, sometimes on its rooftop.
