Henry Moore Sculptor...Atlanta Botanical Gardens...Outdoor Wednesday...

Set within the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the Henry Moore exhibit stands out like a shining star among the lush plantings and the skyline of Atlanta. This is the largest special exhibition of Henry Moore's monumental sculptures ever presented in the U.S. Moore is considered the first sculptor to create fine art intended to be displayed outdoors that were not memorials, monuments or garden ornaments.

Let's begin our tour by walking through these gates.


This one is simply called mother and child.

Here is another sitting in front of the conservatory.
You can certainly see the size of his work.




I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Henry Moore exhibit.
Please visit when you are visiting Atlanta. If you bank at Bank America you can enter the gardens FREE one day a month. Check your Bank America site for more details. This special Henry Moore exhibit will show until October 31.

  3. Hi Joyce! Thanks so much for sharing! Funny...I was checking it out online yesterday! They have a combo ticket with the Monet exhibit at the High. But, as a BOA customer, I am so glad I didn't buy it, because now I know I can go FREE! Woo hoo! I love the gate! Hope you are having a great week!...Debbie

  4. I am proud to say that Henry Moore was a Yorkshireman. I am ashamed to say I have never seen his work in real life.

  11. My favorite thing is the gate. It's all made out of old rusty farm tools! I bet if I dug around I could find lots of similar things. I would love to have a gate like that!
