Visit our New Sculpture Garden. The grounds, gardens, and orchard provide tranquil settings for large-scale outdoor sculpture produced by some of Arizona’s premier sculptors. The works are on loan by the artists and a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of their pieces benefit the Shemer Art Center.
