Exhibits

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.

Habitat Snacks: Who's Eating Whom in the Garden

September 1 - October 29, 2018

Plants and animals rely upon each other for survival. This exhibit by Claire Alderks Miller, Rebecca Dotterer, and Dale Morgan highlights the interconnectedness of native species by examining what they eat. Food chains (prey-predator interactions) from diverse North Carolina habitats - Piedmont, Mountains, Coastal Plain, Sandhills - are identified and depicted in a variety of media. Brilliant watercolors, detailed pen and ink, and luminous colored pencil bring local food chains in the garden to life.

Saving Our Birds

This exhibit inspires awareness and understanding of North Carolina's native birds and encourages citizens to help conserve the habitats they need to thrive.

We also have the Wildflowers of the Year quilts on display, donated by the Durham-Orange Quilters' Guild.


SCULPTURE IN THE GARDEN

It has become tradition, but there is nothing predictable about it. The 30th Annual Sculpture in the Garden exhibition will take place from September 16 to December 9, 2018, at the North Carolina Botanical Garden. Since its inception in 1988, Sculpture in the Garden has united the work of local artists with the curated landscapes of the North Carolina Botanical Garden to create a stunning and novel way to experience sculpture, the natural world, and the relationship between the two.

For more information about the exhibit, including the annual Preview Party and a new Community Day, visit ncbg.unc.edu/sculpture/.
