Brookgreen Gardens

Murrells Inlet, S.C. -- home of the largest and most comprehensive collection of American figurative sculpture in the country -- will feature a selection of these works in the Cantey Building. The focal point of the Brookgreen exhibit, Prize-Winning Sculpture - Award-Winning Gardens, is "Pledge of Allegiance" by Glenna Goodacre. This sculpture will be flanked by several other works of art and artistic garden designs.


This year’s flower display in the Cantey Building will include a combination of floriculture, cut horticulture, potted plants, Garden Club Council of Greater Columbia, and Ikebana designs (the art of Japanese floral arrangements). The flowers will be staged among a wide range of artworks throughout the building, and various shows will be presented throughout the duration of the fair.
