San Diego Botanic Garden is proud to feature the fourth exhibition of Sculpture in the Garden, a unique display of sculptural creations carefully placed throughout the lush and natural 37-acre setting. From July 9, 2012 through April 15, 2013, 23 regional artists will present their sculptures set against a beautiful backdrop of dragon trees, rare fruit gardens, bamboo groves, and other tranquil garden areas.
“We have been so pleased with the positive response from our visitors to the sculptures displayed throughout the Garden,” says Julian Duval, President and CEO of San Diego Botanic Garden. “Not to mention, our artists tell us they could not imagine a more magnificent setting for their artwork than the Garden.”
This year’s curator, Naomi Nussbaum Art & Design, has orchestrated an eclectic exhibition ranging from whimsical to large abstract work with an emphasis on diversity of media and scale.
A select few artists from last year’s exhibition were invited to participate in this year’s inspiring show. Each piece was mindfully selected to appeal to a wide range of interests, with the hope that people may easily visualize the pieces in their own garden.
What makes this exhibition unique is that it is part of the fundraising effort for the Garden. It is a Phantom Gallery—a “gallery” exhibition in which artwork is integrated temporarily into a non-gallery venue—in this case an enchanting botanic garden. All of the artwork is for sale, so take a closer look the next time you visit.
We invite you to take a self-guided tour with a sculpture map available at the Garden or Download Now!
