First opened to the public in 2008, the 200 hectare Jeffrey Rubinoff Sculpture Park is home to a collection of over a hundred of Jeffrey Rubinoff’s sculptures. The Park is situated on a farm purchased by Rubinoff in 1973 for the purpose of the creation and storage of his work. Rubinoff repurposed its barn, originally built in 1889, into a fabrication and casting studio, and worked there from 1980 until his death in 2017.

After growing terminally frustrated with the vacuousness of the art market, Rubinoff started siting his sculpture at the property permanently in 1998, bolting some of them down to granite slabs. This was when the idea of the farm becoming a permanent display of his life’s work began to take shape, though Rubinoff had already been working with landscaping contractor John Kirk to reshape the land to create display mounds and berms, plant over 1000 trees as well as dig drainage streams and 35 ponds. The Park was finally established with the registration of the Jeffrey Rubinoff Sculpture Park Society in 2005.

In late 2006, Rubinoff began working with Karun Koernig on a programme of activities, beginning with an annual symposium, and planning for regular concerts and openings. In 2007 work began on the interpretive centre. It was designed and built by Hornby Island’s Blue Sky design, who completed the project in 2008. Since then the scope of activities has increased dramatically from summer openings, tours and concerts, to university courses and highschool groups, photography classes, and the annual Forum.

Toward the end of Rubinoff’s life he also endowed a post-doctoral fellowship at Cambridge University, a doctoral scholarship at the University of Victoria, a number of other scholarly awards, and a book publication programme. These are all aimed at strengthening the perception of art as a source of knowledge, a purpose to which Rubinoff he dedicated all of the work of the Jeffrey Rubinoff Sculpture Park. As Rubinoff stated at the outset: “Our purpose is extend the ancient narrative of art and consequently rekindle the historical spirit of modernism. In addition to viewing the work, which includes the Sculpture Park itself, the goal is to revive the interdisciplinary creative impetus of early modernism and to attain the understanding of art as a serious and credible source of special insight for the evolution of ideas.”
