“Art is a harmony parallel with nature.” – Paul Cezanne
San Diego Botanic Garden has a rich heritage of garden art, both natural and man-made. Our thirty-seven-acre urban oasis provides the beautiful natural setting for this year’s Sculpture in the Garden—a collection of more than fifty works supplied by over 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. All of the sculptures on display are for sale as part of the Garden’s fund-raising effort.
Sculpture in the Garden is on display from 9 AM to 5 PM daily through early April 2019. Visitors are invited to take a self-guided tour with a sculpture map that can be obtained at the Welcome Center. All sculptures are for sale, with a percentage of the proceeds going to maintain our urban oasis.
