Gary Lee Price “Celebrate the Children” Summer Exhibit – Presented by Reliant
The Best Places To See Stunning Spring Blooms Across the South – Southern Living
April 15-October 15
Mark your calendar for the return of acclaimed sculptor Gary Lee Price and his newest exhibit, “Celebrate the Children,” which features beautiful, hand-crafted bronze sculptures of children placed throughout the gardens and create the perfect photo opportunity for guests.
Thousands of Price’s sculptures are on display in public and private collections throughout the world. The new exhibit features over 25 different bronze sculptures, many of which are his own children. The 5-foot sculpture, “Celebration,” features joyous children celebrating life and soaring around the globe. The sculptures encourage guests to revisit childhood memories such as, “Circle of Peace” playing Ring-Around the Rosie, or the “Cartwheel Kids” in the Shadow Garden.
Each piece of artwork ranges from 2 to 7.5 feet tall with one sculpture weighing more than 1,300 lbs. Price has been creating bronze sculptures for more than 35 years. The summer exhibit is on display for six months, and we are excited to welcome Price and his children back into the garden. All of Price’s sculptures on display are available for purchase, along with smaller versions in The Hoffman Family Gift Store, and the Dallas Arboretum receives a portion of the commissions.
