ZimSculpt | Outdoor Art Exhibiton

The exhibition runs until September 8, 2019.
Admission is free.

ZimSculpt is a spectacular display of sculptures made by hand from stone from the Zimbabwean mountains. Over 100 large sculptures will be displayed throughout the gardens along with the very popular Marketplace where hundreds of handheld pieces will be available for purchase. The setting of the botanical garden amplifies both the beauty of the art as well as the gardens.

All sculptures are available for purchase. Delivery and installation of larger pieces will be for free for local addresses. 

Zimbabwean sculptors Brighton Layson and Passmore Mupindiko will be back again, directly from Zimbabwe – demonstrating and answering questions about the stone, technique and their inspirational stories.
