Art in the Arboretum was created to promote the arts and further the connection between the Arboretum, UCSC, and the Santa Cruz community.
We need your support to grow the program and fund our next visionary exhibit, Site-Specific Environmental Installations. Artists will create amazing works that complement and enhance the gardens, varying in medium and scale, and each engaging the viewer to explore the gardens and discover other artworks along the journey. An intricate part of this project is to provide educational experiences for all. When installing the pieces, artists, Arboretum staff, students, and volunteers will work side by side, and during the exhibit, visitors will learn about art and the Arboretum through discussions, workshops, and demonstrations.
Our matching gift of $1,000 has been met! Let's keep that support going!
