Hare on Bell on Portland Stone Piers, 1983, by Barry Flanagan, Walker Art Center
Kirkland Museum members are invited to participate in a privately guided tour of the Denver Botanic Gardens exhibition, Stories in Sculpture: Selections from the Walker Art Center Collection. Artists represented in the exhibition include Henry Moore, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi, George Segal, Saul Baizerman, Deborah Butterfield, Barry Flanagan and Judith Shea. Sculptures are placed throughout the Gardens as complements to the living museum's natural settings. The 20th century sculptures, all of which are on loan from the Walker Art Center's renowned permanent collection, are primarily figurative, though some portray abstract compositions.
Tour participants should meet outside of the Garden's main entryway on York Street prior to the tour, which will begin promptly at 6:30pm. A Kirkland Museum staff member will check you in upon your arrival. The tour will last approximately 60 minutes and will be led by a knowledgeable Denver Botanic Gardens docent. Your specially discounted $5 tour ticket includes General Admission to the Gardens (a combined value of $14). The Gardens are open until 9pm and participants are welcome to explore independently after the tour has ended.
The tour will take place rain or shine. Parking at the Gardens is free.
