Art in the Gardens
Art brings beauty into our gardens, adds a human element, tells a story, and creates dialogue. Discover the abundance of art installations that grace our garden setting.
Art Collections & Installations
Dan Lawrie International Sculpture Collection
RBG friend and donor Dan Lawrie has made a commitment through 2023 to donate inspiring sculpture to Royal Botanical Gardens, creating the International Sculpture Collection. Through Dan’s generosity, this permanent collection grows in Hendrie Park each year, with the addition of new works from around the world.

Also known as ephemeral art, Earth Art installations are an exciting genre of art that has emerged from the contemporary world’s environmental consciousness. Various installations from past Earth Art exhibitions can be found throughout RBG properties.
