#336 In the field: Brookgreen Gardens

Entrance to Brookgreen Gardens
Anna Hyatt Huntington's Fighting Stallions
Brookgreen Gardens is a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve located in Murrell's Inlet, South Carolina.  It is the creation of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington who opened the 9000 acre facility in 1931.  It is America's first public sculpture garden and has the largest collection of figurative sculpture by American artists in an outdoor setting in the world.

I am on the Brookgreen Gardens Board of Trustees and have visited the museum and gardens many times . . . most recently, last month for our bi-annual meeting.

On April 15, 16, 17, 2013, I will be teaching a 3-day bird sculpture and anatomy workshop.  Beginners and especially painters  . . .
who over the years, have been among my best students . . . are welcome!
Also, I will be teaching a 5-day workshop at the Scottsdale Artists School
Jan. 21-25, 2013.
