Exhibits and Art at the Garden

There are many ways to explore and learn about the natural world. We regularly host exhibits that help to interpret the natural world of which we are a part or that represent an artist's view of nature.

ANNUAL SCULPTURE IN THE GARDEN exhibition

2014 Exhibition: September 21 - December 7 | Preview Party September 20

Every fall the North Carolina Botanical Garden hosts an outdoor exhibition of exciting sculptures by North Carolina artists. In 2013, for the 25th anniversary of this dynamic exhibition, we had 44 pieces of outstanding art framed by our fall garden landscapes (the show closed on December 8).Read an article about the show in the Daily Tar Heel. The juror for the 2013 invitational sculpture show was Steve Litt, art and architecture critic from The Plain Dealer (and formerly of the Raleigh News & Observer). Awards were announced at the festive opening reception on September 20:
