Up Now: Sculpture in the Garden

The 34th annual Sculpture in the Garden opened on Sunday, September 18 and runs until Sunday, December 4.

Since 1988, Sculpture in the Garden has united the work of local artists with the native plant landscapes of the North Carolina Botanical Garden. Together, they invite you to experience art, the natural world, and the relationship between the two in a new way. From steel to ceramic, tiny to massive, and abstract to figurative, there’s something for everyone. The show is free to visit during normal Garden hours (suggested donation $5), and all ages are welcome. Most sculptures are available for purchase, and a portion of proceeds benefits the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

This year’s show features 77 installations by 50 North Carolina artists. Learn more at ncbg.unc.edu/sculpture.
