Summer at the Arboretum

Gary Lee Price’s Great Contributors Bronze Statues Exhibit

The Great Contributors exhibit is on display until November 27 and is a part of Gary Lee Price’s renowned art collection. A fellow of the National Sculpture Society, Price has been recognized worldwide for his bold work lifting and celebrating the human spirit. The life-size bronze sculptures on display include Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Claude Monet, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain and the Wright Brothers, many of which are on benches or in garden settings.These sculptures are only a few of the finest contributors in world history. With the original goal to create 10 male figures and 10 female figures, Price will soon embark on phase two with influencers such as Ruby Bridges, Sacajawea, Amelia Earhart, Mother Theresa and many more.

Delbert the Dragon

This larger-than-life statue by Gary Lee Price made its national debut the weekend of July 23 in the Pecan Grove, where he will sit until November 27.

As always, the Arboretum will display an incredible selection of seasonal plantings during summer. The display beds will be bursting with ageratum, impatiens, petunias, cleome, begonias, salvia, marigolds, lobelia and zinnias. As the temperatures warm, caladiums, lantana, pride of Barbados, variegated tapioca, elephant ears and coleus will be added to the gardens.
