Back for its fifth year, the newly expanded Art in the Garden is a unique showcase of art and nature, geared to Arboretum visitors of all ages. Find a wide variety of juried art displayed by talented artists who will be on hand to meet with visitors in the "Artist Village" near the Margot Picnic Shelters. The Artist Village is a place where visitors and artists can mix, mingle, stroll, eat and shop!

The Young Artists category is an opportunity for kids ages 12-17 to sell their original artwork and meet artists in the local community. Artwork must reflect or be related to nature and fit within the traditional and artisan mediums. Interested young artists will need to fill out a separate Young Artist form at right.
