Stories in Sculpture: Selections from the Walker Art Center Collection

From April 29 to Oct. 2, 2016, see 13 contemporary sculptures bask among the gardens in an unusual event at Denver Botanic Gardens.

Organized by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Stories in Sculpture: Selections from the Walker Art Center Collection presents selections from the institution's renowned permanent collection.

The exhibition came about after the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden needed to undergo a major reconstruction project. Denver Botanic Gardens offered to temporarily display the artworks to keep them front in center with the public but in an entirely new setting.

Featured Things to Do
 

And these aren't just any sculptures. They represent works from some of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century like:

Henry Moore - English sculptor known for his abstractions of human figures.

Louise Nevelson - American sculptor known for her cubist style and use of recycled materials.

Isamu Noguchi - American artist and landscape architect known for his gardens and public pieces.

George Segal - American painter and sculptor known for his life-size human forms in various scenes.

Saul Baizerman - Russian-born artist known for his laborious shaped-by-hand copper pieces.

Deborah Butterfield - American artist known for her horse sculptures made from found objects. A collection of her work appeared in 2015 at Denver Botanic Gardens.

Barry Flanagan - Welsh sculptor known for his bronze statues of animals, particularly hares.

Judith Shea - American sculptor known for her bronze pieces featuring empty clothing.

Slow down and enjoy these subtle but impactful displays as they won’t be there forever. The exhibition will be on view at the Gardens' York Street location.
