Zimbabwe Art Exhibition at Naples Botanical Garden

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Naples Botanical Gardens is once again proud to showcase ZimSculpt, a presentation of sculptures from more than 100 artists from Zimbabwe. There will be over 100 works featuring cobalt stone, lapidolite, leopard rock, opal stone, serpentine and springstone. The works, from more than 40 sculptors, will be placed throughout the Gardens, and on-site carving will also be taking place. After the construction of the main gardens and restoration of the 90-acre preserve, we are looking towards the final phase of original expansion construction with a new Welcome Center that will include admissions, a Garden Store, meeting spaces, an auditorium, a café and additional visitor amenities.

In 1993, a group of eight Naples residents founded the Garden with nothing more than the dream of creating a world-class botanical garden. In 2000, a gift from the Kapnick Family enabled the purchase of an extraordinary 170-acre site with seven different habitats just south of Old Naples. An existing strip mall and parking lot were transformed into a garden experience to introduce the community to what was to come. In June 2008, the Garden closed to general visitors to begin our ultimate transformation into our existing "Gardens with Latitude" which includes six cultivated gardens, 2.5 miles of walking trails, and 90-acres of restored native preserve .
