30th Annual
Sculpture in the Garden

September 27 - December 9, 2018


It has become tradition, but there is nothing predictable about it. The 30th Annual Sculpture in the Garden exhibition opens on Thursday, September 27, 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. This year's show features over 50 pieces by 30 artists in media ranging from steel to ceramic to glass.

Admission to the exhibition, as well as to the Garden itself, is free and open to the public. Sculpture in the Garden is geared toward all ages and will be enjoyed by the casual observer as well as the serious art collector. Most pieces are available for purchase, although no pieces will be removed before the end of the show. This year, voting for the People's Choice Award will be open to the public until Sunday, October 14.
