These 20 museum quality, fine art, outdoor and indoor, metal sculptures will be displayed throughout our 31 specialty gardens and will be accompanied by a broad array of programming and events.

The Memphis Botanic Garden will be the first venue in our region of the country to host this exhibit. Versions of it have recently been shown at botanic gardens in Naples, FL; Tucson, AZ; Santa Rosa, CA and suburban Chicago.   

Throughout the 6 months of the exhibit we will have a variety of programs and special events for kids, families and guests to the Garden.
