Via Dallas Arboretum Website

This is the largest collection ever assembled for a show in the United States. Known as Shona sculpture, these contemporary pieces can be as large as seven feet tall and are hand carved from stone, as hard as granite. ZimSculpt will feature exquisite sculptures of several dozen contemporary Zimbabwean artists displayed throughout the garden.

Known as Shona sculpture, these contemporary pieces are carved from various types of serpentine and semi-precious stone, often weighing tons, and can be as large as seven feet tall. As part of the exhibit, guests are welcome to watch artists and sculptors Passmore Mupindiko and Aron Kapembeza demonstrate their artistry carving statues daily in The Marketplace, which is located in the Pecan Grove.

Visitors may purchase any of the sculptures on display in the garden, as well as the pieces created by the onsite artists in The Marketplace. The Marketplace will be open to guests seven days a week, and on Wednesday evenings, selling hand-held to medium size sculptures. Commissioned pieces can be ordered and made onsite by the artists.
We will also have a host of special events explaining the history of the art form, allowing guests to learn about the techniques and even attempt a bit of sculpting themselves, giving guests the opportunity to take a guided tour of the exhibit and more.
