An annual exhibit

This autumn marks the 36th annual Sculpture in the Garden exhibit. Sculpture in the Garden unites 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.
