Brookgreen Gardens

Brookgreen Gardens, Pawley's Island, S.C. 
I was without a computer for about a week recently so I have a few backlogged photos waiting to be posted. Spring is the most beautiful time to visit Brookgreen Gardens and well worth a trip up the coast. It is the first sculpture garden in the US and has an impressive collection of statues.
Brookgreen Gardens, the first public sculpture garden in America, has in its collection more than 1,400 works by over 350 sculptors. Exhibited within the gardens is the largest and most comprehensive collection of American figurative sculpture in the country, by sculptors who worked from the early nineteenth century to the present. Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historical Landmark, and is accredited by the American Association of Museums. Brookgreen offers workshops in sculpture by nationally known sculptors throughout the year.

I think you will like it. Then Huntington State Park across the highway is the home of the original sculptress (is that a word?)

The sculptural work stands out quite well- particularly that last one.

I love sculpture outdoors in parks. These are beautiful.
