The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is a 120-acre living museum, containing plants from around the world as well as sculpture installed amidst the beauty of the 23 specialty gardens. We hold over thirty pieces of outdoor sculpture by artists such as Evaline Sellors, Gene Owens, Glenna Goodacre, Cameron Schoepp, Chris Powell, and Charles T. Williams. Many sculptures on our campus are part of the Legacy Collection of Fort Worth Public Art. We occasionally welcome contemporary sculptors to install large-scale artworks in our gardens for visitors to enjoy and reflect upon.
Monthly docent-guided tours of our outdoor sculpture collection are available the first Saturday of most months at 10 am. Admission to the Garden is free for members; non-members may purchase tickets here. Admission to the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) building is free.
There are several indoor art venues across our campus. The BRIT building features the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the Upper Atrium Collections Gallery. The Samples Hall features a rotating selection of contemporary, nature-related art, while the Collections Gallery features botanical prints from our Library collection, including The Arader Natural History Collection of Art. Pieces from our permanent art collection are installed throughout the Garden Center.
