Inhotim Sustainable Art Park
It’s a Little Different

Inhotim is part sustainable botanical garden, part artistic wonder. Located in Brazil, its 240 sprawling acres sit on what was once a mining site.

Today it’s a carefully tended landscape that includes lush vegetation and rare plant species, five lakes and a preserved forest.

It was started by Bernardo Paz, whose vision was a melding of art and nature that can be accessed by anyone. And while its focus is to deliver an experience to visitors, the park remains dedicated to doing that while creating as little environmental impact as possible. Inhotim carefully monitors its use of raw materials, limits its waste, and ensures it recycles all that it can.
