Steve Tobin “Rooted” Takes Hold at the San Antonio Botanical Garden
August 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT$16
Nature-inspired sculptures by the globally renowned artist will be on view from April 16 through October 30, 2022
The San Antonio Botanical Garden presents its newest exhibition, Rooted, by acclaimed contemporary artist Steve Tobin. More than 20 towerings and nature-inspired sculptures will be on view throughout the Garden from April 16 through October 30, 2022.
Artist Steve Tobin selected San Antonio for the world debut of his new sculptures and some of his favorites to create the largest monumental sculpture exhibition of his 40-year career.
“I look at nature in a different way than others. So, you get to see my interpretation,” says artist Steve Tobin. “Roots are unearthed, and clouds are at your feet. My work is meant for the art disenfranchised. You don’t need to be an art lover to appreciate what I do.”
Experience the forces of nature through the artist’s eyes, including root systems towering up to 30-feet high, polished clouds resting on the earth, bronze steel egg-laden nests reaching up six (6) feet into the sky, south Texas heat-tolerant massive icicles, and spiraling tornadoes affectionately named, “twisties.” The exhibition also features Tobin’s Steelroots and Bronze Root series, exposing nature’s strength, grace, and complexities.
Root-inspired events and programs are available, including workshops and nature camps.
