Lunch and Lecture : Sculptura Botanica with Dustin Gimbel
May 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$30 – $40
On select Fridays of the month Sherman Gardens, in conjunction with Cafe Jardin, features a horticulture speaker combined with a delicious lunch. The Lunch & Lecture Series was started to educate guests about the benefits of botanic gardens. Whether tackling the issues of food access, mental health, environmental education, sustainability, or cultivating creativity, the public needs botanic gardens.
Los Angeles based ceramic artist and landscape designer Dustin Gimbel will talk about his botanically themed installation of sculptures on display in the Tropical Conservatory. Stemming from a lifetime fascination with plants, a career in horticulture and a more recent obsession with ceramics, the exhibition explore botanical forms, from the familiar to the obscure. His pieces of bold, contemporary interpretations of botanical plants and plant parts promise to delight and engage the senses.
