On February 27, Brookgreen Gardens unveiled The Brenda and Dick Rosen Galleries as a celebration of its 90th anniversary. The gardens’ newest indoor exhibition space debuted with an expansive first exhibit called "Wild World: 200 Years of Nature in Art." The exhibit encompasses four separate gallery spaces, all decorated with 200 years worth of paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and historic objects reflecting the world of wild and domestic animals, native plants, and the history of the Brookgreen property.
The Brenda and Dick Rosen Galleries are located where the Brookgreen Welcome Center formerly was. These galleries will present permanent exhibits as well as traveling ones. The inaugural exhibit, "Wild World: 200 Years of Nature in Art," will be on display until May 23. Just some of the many animal paintings and sculptures you'll find in the exhibit include buffalo, birds and dogs. There are also a handful of Lowcountry historical relics such as the grand piano that once belonged to the founders of Brookgreen.
According to Page Kiniry, president and CEO of Brookgreen Gardens, the garden is thrilled to present this new space to visitors. Now, Brookgreen can offer visitors even more significant collections of sculpture and other art mediums.
