Explore the ZimSculpt Exhibit at Dallas Arboretum

ZimSculpt - Dallas Aboretum

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is currently showcasing ZimSculpt, a world renowned exhibit featuring Zimbabwean stone sculptures. From now until July 31, 2017, people throughout the Dallas community will have the opportunity to view this beautiful exhibit and experience the work of some of Zimbabwe’s most influential sculptors.

Over 100 Zimbabwean stone sculptures have been inserted throughout the Dallas Arboretum. These contemporary pieces are known as Shona sculpture and are hand carved by artists. In many cases, the sculptures reach over seven feet tall and are typically as hard as granite. They are also made up of serpentine and semi-precious stone, and often weigh tons.
