This fabulous exhibition and sale of Zimbabwean sculpture returns to the VanDusen Botanical Garden for its final visit to Vancouver. More than 300 pieces of stone sculpture by 50 different artists will be strikingly arranged throughout the Garden. Walk along the grounds to discover stone animals, people and abstract works, or watch sculptors Passmore Mupindiko and Patrick Sephani carve custom pieces on site, using traditional stone-cutting techniques.
Zimsculpt is a chance to see pieces that influenced some of the 20th century’s greatest artists, including Man Ray, Miró, Matisse and Picasso and to maybe take a piece of history home with you.
Part art mart, part garden stroll — it’s a homo horticulturist’s dream.
Even better, partial proceeds benefit the VanDusen Botanical Garden, an oasis of calm in a bustling city.
Aug. 12-Sept. 25 at VanDusen Botanical Garden (5251 Oak St.).
Admission $10.25 (regular garden admission).
