The Courtyard Garden is an elegantly designed outdoor space that invites relaxation and quiet contemplation within the gallery. In 1906, Charles L. Freer, a Detroit railroad-car manufacturer, donated his exceptional collection of Asian art and works by James McNeil Whistler to the people of the United States.
