African Sculpture at the Arboretum

The largest collection of Shona sculpture ever assembled for a show in the U.S. these pieces can be as large as seven feet tall, and are hand carved from stone as hard as granite.

Sculptors Passmore Mupindiko and Aron Kapembeza will demonstrate their artistry by carving statues live in the Pecan Grove using chisels, hammers, files and sandpaper, while guests watch and try to carve themselves.

Visitors may purchase all the sculptures on display in the garden, as well as those created by the on-site artists, from the Arboretum Marketplace.
