MOA specializes in creating environments that promote a range of sculpture, as well as performance art. The art collection is located within various public locations throughout the Denver metro area. From commercial office parks to botanic gardens, city parks and traditional sculpture gardens; art is placed to interpret space as "a museum without walls." Employing a combination of art, architecture, and landscape, MOA is best known for integrating these disciplines in order to create exemplary environments. Foremost, the Museum of Outdoor Arts believes in "making art a part of everyday life" by integrating the arts into public spaces accessible by all.
