Lots of really cool looking sculptures to see....and buy if you have the wallet. Parking and entry to the gardens is free BTW. Bring a nice picnic on a nice day and get free brownie points as well.

ZimSculpt
Toronto Botanical Garden’s outdoor African art exhibition “ZimSculpt” showcases hundreds of stone sculptures by many of Zimbabwe’s most renowned contemporary artists.

The exhibition opens Friday, August 3 through September 30, 2018. FREE ADMISSION

The works are chiseled, hand-carved, sanded and polished by artists who draw upon a wide variety of inspiration. From dramatic modern styling praised by Henry Moore, to more contemplative “village” pieces that capture African life, these sculptures project a vibrancy that has captivated audiences around the world. The setting of Toronto’s most beautiful garden for this great art highlights the beauty of both.

During the course of the exhibition, two artists-in-residence will be live-sculpting, demonstrating their carving techniques and intricate handiwork. All displayed work, including work created during the event, will be available for purchase, and visitors are welcome to commission pieces from the two featured artists.

An outdoor Marketplace will feature smaller one-of-a-kind sculptures for purchase as well as traditional basketry and jewellery by Zimbabwean artists.

The Marketplace will be open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursdays nights until dusk.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Darn, I was hoping to get into the Royal Botanical Gardens for free, but this is just the Toronto one.

Breakfast TV was at the Toronto Botanical Gardens this morning. BTW there are two sculptors there doing their craft...you can talk to them and see them sculpt.
