Sherman Gardens’ lush garden setting plays host to an array of festivals, programs and art displays.
Upcoming exhibits in 2020 include:
Jungle Junk Critters
February 1 through April 30
Jungle Junk Critters, a pop-up exhibit, will be featured in the Tropical Conservatory from February 1 through April 30. This eco-friendly installation features artist Ron Yeo, a local Corona del Mar artist and “master recycler.” Ron is here to prove that old saying, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”
Repurposed art goes by a variety of names: urban art, junk art, found art, funk art, trash art, and weird art, but Ron likes to call it FUN ART! “ I take found and collected items that were destined for the landfill, or that would be washed into the ocean, and re-imagine them with a new purpose as FUN ART!”
May 1 through September 15
Scultura Botanica is a site specific art installation by ceramic artist and landscape designer Dustin Gimbel. This interactive exhibit, featuring all original pieces, will be on display from May 1 through September 15.
Dustin Gimbel, local landscape designer and ceramic artist, will be bringing his artistic – Sculptura Botanica – a botanically themed installation of sculptures throughout Sherman Gardens. Stemming from a lifetime fascination with plants, a career in horticulture, and a more recent obsession with ceramics, the exhibition will explore botanical forms, from the familiar to the obscure. Visitors will rethink how they see plants and their structures. This sculpture exhibition engages the senses (sight, sound, touch, and smell) through interactive features. Come and see Dustin’s transformation of Sherman Gardens this spring and summer.
Dustin takes his artistic inspiration from plants and the natural world. Here is a preview of the upcoming exhibit and a peek into Dustin’s creative process.
