An annual exhibit

This autumn marks the 34th annual Sculpture in the Garden exhibit. 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. Together, they invite you to experience art, the natural world, and the relationship between the two in a new way.
