Art in the Gardens 2020

SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, 2020

We are already looking forward to the 28th annual Art in the Gardens (AIG) at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens! Set amidst the spectacular background of summer floral displays, the day-long juried art event will be held on Saturday, August 1st.

Join us in a celebration of creative expression, gorgeous gardens, music, beer, wine, and food. Over the past quarter of a century, AIG has showcased extraordinary creations such as ceramics, glass, paintings, sculpture, textiles, and woodworking. Spend a day strolling 47 acres of natural beauty from the manicured gardens and fern-ringed ponds at the Gardens’ entrance to the wildflower-strewn bluffs at ocean’s edge. Mingle with artists amongst dramatic summertime blooms. Sip an array of wines and craft brews from around Mendocino County.
