African Sculpture at the Arboretum
ZimSculpt, a world-renowned exhibition of more than modern Zimbabwean stone sculptures, will be on display at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden from April 15 through July 31. 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.
Location: 8525 Garland Rd., Dallas. For more information, call 214-515-6615 or visit DallasArboretum.org.
