The Tucson Botanical Gardens, a tranquil oasis in the heart of Tucson, strives to be recognized and respected as the best small public garden in America.
When we first heard artist Robert J. Wick speak the words,“Until you can grow a tree from your own heart, you’ll never understand the oneness of all things,” we knew that Robert’s monumental bronze sculptures, each of which carry a living plant or tree, belonged at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. According to Robert, “The flora are not decorations; but are an integral part of the art defining its character by quality, shape and nature of the plants used… My works of art are a union of art, man, and nature.”
Roberts’s sculptures have been exhibited throughout the country including the Denver Botanic Garden, Cleveland Museum of Art, Clark Gardens in Fort Worth and Kent State University.
This exhibit will be on display throughout the Gardens from January 26th to June 30th.
