If you have not visited the Dallas Arboretum And Botanical Garden you just don't know what you are missing! Although the exhibits and gardens change regularly, there is always something beautiful and fascinating to enjoy. One of the current special exhibits is the ZimSculpt (photo courtesy of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden website). The exhibit features over 100 Zimbabwean stone sculptures, all hand carved and they are in display throughout the Dallas Arboretum gardens. You can even meet the sculptors as they are on site and create new art daily. Would you like to own a piece of Zimbabwean art? You can find the perfect piece to purchase and take home to your own garden. But you have to hurry to see this exhibit as it runs through July 31st.
And as with many things, membership has its privileges...members may enjoy morning walks and yoga along with other special member only calendar events. Click on the logo above to go directly to the Dallas Arboretum And Botanical Garden website to learn all about the benefits of membership.
