Simply Amazing.,” is a 120-page hardcover publication that showcases more than 100 dazzling photographs and illuminates stories of their world-renowned collection of American figurative sculpture, ever-blooming botanical gardens, Lowcountry wildlife sanctuary, and rich history.

“From our large sculptures to brilliantly blooming gardens, this book brings Brookgreen Gardens to life on the page,” said Brookgreen President and CEO Page Hayhurst Kiniry. “By launching this book during our 90th anniversary year, we are able to celebrate a monumental milestone in Brookgreen’s history and detail Brookgreen’s evolution into America’s first sculpture garden.”

Advancing the founder’s original mission, Brookgreen collects, conserves, and exhibits American figurative sculpture, as well as the plants, animals, and cultural materials of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
