About Brookgreen Gardens

A former indigo and rice plantation, Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina was purchased in 1930 by New York industrialist Archer Huntington and his sculptor wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, both as a natural outdoor setting for Mrs. Huntington’s sculpture and for the preservation of southeastern flaura and fauna. Opened to the public in 1932, it was the first public sculpture garden in America and is now a National Historic Landmark. Set within 300 beautifully manicured acres and containing more than 2,000 varieties of native flowers, shrubs and trees, including an avenue of live oaks which are approximately 250 years old, Brookgreen, according to Stephen May in the New York Times, “provides an unusual opportunity for a survey of just about every major American representational sculptor of the last century and a half.” The Gardens contain nearly six hundred works by over two hundred artists and are now acclaimed as having the world’s finest collection of American figural sculpture from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

About the Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture Photographs
