Attend the highly anticipated reveal of the 2010 Art in the Gardens poster painting. This unveiling formally launches our season of art in preparation for our largest fundraising event in August – Art in the Gardens, on Saturday, August 7. Acclaimed featured artist, Laura Pope, will be on hand through the afternoon to personalize a commemorative Art in the Gardens poster for you.
Meet the 2010 Sculpture Gallery artists. The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens has partnered with the Arts Council to present exhibitions of sculpture on the grounds of the Botanical Gardens.
