Sculpture in the Garden

“Art is a harmony parallel with nature.”— Paul Cezanne (1839–1906)

San Diego Botanic Garden has a rich heritage of both natural and man-made garden art. Our 37-acre urban oasis provides the beautiful natural setting for this year’s Sculpture in the Garden—a collection of over fifty works created by more than thirty artists, including renowned local artist James Hubbell.

Visitors are invited to engage with these diverse creations set against a unique backdrop of dragon trees, rare fruit gardens, bamboo groves, tranquil ponds, and other natural settings. Ranging from the whimsical to the abstract, each piece has been carefully placed to help guests visualize these stunning works of art in their own gardens. Visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour with a sculpture map from Welcome Center.

Sculpture in the Garden is on display from 9AM-5PM daily through early April 2018. All of the sculptures on display are for sale as part of the Garden’s fund-raising effort, with a percentage of the proceeds going to maintain our urban oasis.
