Published

on

In honor of its 90th anniversary, Brookgreen Gardens will unveil a new indoor art exhibition space called The Brenda and Dick Rosen Galleries on February 27th. The new gallery spaces, located in the former Brookgreen Welcome Center, will be home to permanent and traveling exhibitions, allowing visitors opportunities to view works by internationally renowned artists. Brookgreen will unveil the galleries along with its inaugural exhibition, “Wild World: 200 Years of Nature in Art” on the 27th.

“We are thrilled to present this new space that will allow us to exhibit even more significant collections of sculpture and other art mediums,” Page Kiniry, President and CEO of Brookgreen Gardens, said. “As a nonprofit, we rely on the support of patrons like our Board Chair and lifetime member, Dick Rosen, who graciously donated to help build this new space. We hope to continue expanding and offering new experiences for our visitors – for today and the future.”

Brookgreen Gardens says The Rosen Galleries will include four exhibition spaces totaling over 5,800 square feet with a capacity of 600 and will display rotating and permanent exhibitions of “contemporary and historic artworks that underpin Brookgreen’s national recognition as a renowned museum.”

“I’ve been visiting Brookgreen for most of my life,” Dick Rosen, chair of Brookgreen Gardens’ Board of Trustees, said. “I want to ensure Brookgreen Gardens is a destination for future generations, which is why my family and I supported the construction of the new gallery spaces. I hope the Rosen Galleries will further enrich visitors’ experience at Brookgreen and will keep them coming back to Brookgreen.”

The gallery’s introductory show, “Wild World: 200 Years of Nature in Art” includes paintings, sculptures, etchings, lithographs, and drawings by 19th, 20th, and 21st-century artists in the fields of botanical and zoological illustration. Sporting art and other fine art depicting the purposes of Brookgreen Gardens — sculpture, plants, animals, and history — are also included in this exhibition on display from February 27th through May 23rd.
