Wild and Beautiful: Artist Alliance Sculpture Exhibit at San Diego Botanic Garden

Now through August 1
10 am – 5 pm

Encinitas CA— It is with great pleasure that San Diego Botanic Garden, in partnership with Oceanside Museum of Art Artist Alliance, presents the Wild and Beautiful sculpture exhibition. SDBG has developed a longstanding tradition of exhibiting sculptures within their lush 37-acre urban oasis that, in keeping with the times, continues on a moderated scale for 2021.

Inspired by nature, the featured artworks were selected from submissions demonstrating a broad spectrum of materials, styles, and creative interpretations. All of the original sculptures in the collection were created by members of OMA Artist Alliance and selected for the exhibition by juror Kay Colvin. Mindful consideration was given to pairing each unique work of art with an environment that enhances its aesthetic character, while the artwork in turn complements the beauty of its botanic setting.

We hope you will enjoy roaming the scenic trails to discover the 13 diverse artworks placed throughout the microenvironments of this horticultural wonderland.

Located at our current main entrance at 300 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas, CA 92024, San Diego Botanic Garden is a 37-acre urban oasis located in the heart of Encinitas with four miles of garden trails and exotic specimen plants from throughout the world.

Daytime admission – from 10 am – 5 pm, Wednesdays through Sundays – is always free for Garden members. We encourage you to become a member! Admission for non-members prices vary. Reservations must be made online at SDBGarden.org before arriving at the Garden. Parking is free. For more information on San Diego Botanic Garden, please visit www.sdbgarden.org
