The exhibit will be on view daily 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. until Nov. 2 and is free with garden admission.
The annual awards exhibition is the National Sculpture Society’s most popular show. Hundreds of artists apply to the juried competition that awards thousands of dollars in prizes. Highlights of this year’s exhibit include a springing Jack-in-the-Box; an aviary of exotic birds; portrait busts of celebrated heroes; and animal and human figures captured in unguarded moments.
Additionally, visitors to the exhibition vote for their favorites to win the Brookgreen People’s Choice Award, announced at the end of the exhibition.
