“Human | Nature: Figures from the Craig Ponzio Sculpture Collection” is Denver Botanic Gardens’ York Street exhibition of figurative sculpture from the early 20th century to today. The sculptures explore the human form in both classical and abstract styles.
Featured artists include Eric Fischl, Auguste Rodin, Jacques Lipchitz, Sassona Norton, Beverly Pepper, Ann Vrielinck, Squire Broel and Manolo Valdés. The artworks range in height from two feet to 10 feet tall. The exhibition is included with general admission.
“Nothing reveals and enhances figurative sculpture like the color and beauty of nature,” says Craig Ponzio. “Denver Botanic Gardens is a wonderful natural setting for the sculptures of the human figure as depicted by a variety of talented artists.”
Lisa Eldred, director of exhibitions and head curator of art at Denver Botanic Gardens notes, “This exhibition celebrates the long tradition of figurative art in the landscape and shares examples of the many ways in which artists harness and reference the power of the human form.”
“Human | Nature: Figures from the Craig Ponzio Sculpture Collection” is on view through September 15, 2019, at Denver Botanic Gardens.
