Tulips with art piece in backgroundBeyond the Botanical: Sculptures, Fountains, Pools, and Ponds of the Garden
Saturday, June 3; 10 a.m.–noon
Evocative, thought-provoking, and thematic, we invite you to take a deeper look into the varied sculptures and fountains of the Garden. Led by Docent Lee Ann Grush, this dynamic, one-and-a-half mile walk through the Garden and many of its forty-two installations will delight both the historian and art-lover. From historic placement of elegant, classical pieces of marble art by the Garden’s founder to the vibrant, more modern pieces of today, Lee Ann will guide you through the intricate (and often surprising) way the sculptors have woven a new thread of beauty through the Garden.
