Call to Artists


Deadline to submit artwork: Friday, March 17th

Sculptures must be free standing, three-dimensional, stable art works, and artists should bring their own substantial footing bases to stabilize pieces on the gravel and decomposed granite paths. Submissions do not guarantee acceptance to the show.


After-Hours Events

We host exclusive, after-hours events to showcase the art in the Garden at golden hour. Refreshments and live music pair nicely with the peacefulness of the Garden in the evening. Garden Members get early access to ticket sales as well as discounted tickets.

Opening Night

Enjoy first-looks at the pieces for sale and on display during the year’s exhibit.
