Sculpture in the Garden is a much-anticipated annual event at the Ruth Bancroft Garden:
For one month every year, The Ruth Bancroft Garden transforms into an outdoor art gallery. The Garden's world-class collection of succulent and drought-tolerant plants provides a spectacular backdrop for artists to display their works. Follow the meandering pathways to discover art that ranges from classical to irreverent, spiritual to functional. (Source: RBG web site)
This is the 19th time that Sculpture in the Garden has been held at RBG, and I can’t think of a better way to showcase outdoor art. After all, succulents are nature’s very own sculptures!
In spite of the heat gripping much of the western U.S., I made the drive to Walnut Creek this morning, and I photographed many of the pieces on display. No matter whether you’re a fan of art in the garden or not, I’m sure some of the sculptures will win you over or at least make you smile.
