Naples Botanical Garden and National Sculpture Society present All Creatures Great and Small. This juried exhibition of 32 sculptures will be on display throughout the Garden January 8 to March 8, 2015.
All Creatures Great and Small is mainly bronze pieces, all with an animal theme. Free with general admission, this exhibition will be displayed throughout the Garden’s 90 cultivated acres. Guests will take an artistic journey through the Garden to discover these creatures sculpted by some of the country’s most exciting artists. Noted sculptors include Kent Ullberg, Floyd DeWitt, Bart Walter and Leo Osborne as well as a host of up and coming talent from every corner of the United States.
National Sculpture Society received nearly 100 entries for All Creatures Great and Small. A panel of five jurors, including two representatives from Naples Botanical Garden, reviewed all show submissions and after a lengthy process, selected the final pieces to exhibit at the Garden. The show includes many delightful animals from a playful elephant and a larger-than-life grasshopper to a ram and a fox!
Garden docents will be on hand to interpret these works of art submitted from artists around the country. Children and families will enjoy hands-on opportunities to learn more about nature inspired art.
