Sculpture in the Garden Preview Party

North Carolina Botanical Garden

Saturday, September 17, 2022, 4:30 - 6:30 P.M.

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. From steel to ceramic, tiny to massive, and abstract to figurative, there’s something for everyone.

At the Preview Party on Saturday, September 17, you'll meet the artists, get first viewing of the show (and the first chance to purchase pieces), and enjoy beverages and hors d'oeuvres! We'll announce the winners of Best in Show and Honorable Mentions, chosen by a jurist, and you'll be able to cast your vote for the People's Choice Award.

Half of each ticket price supports the Sculpture in the Garden exhibit and is tax deductible. Event is rain or shine. Attendance is limited, so register today.
