“Human | Nature: Figures from the Craig Ponzio Sculpture Collection”

This summer, the Denver Botanic Gardens emphasizes its commitment to facilitating the human-nature connection by quite literally placing human forms amid its York Street location’s diverse landscapes. “Human | Nature: Figures from the Craig Ponzio Sculpture Collection” showcases 17 figurative works from the early 20th century to the present, on loan from Denver philanthropist and art collector Craig Ponzio, that interpret the human form in styles from classical to abstract. The sculptures come from a collection of artists including Eric Fischl, Jacques Lipchitz, Sassona Norton and Beverly Pepper and include showstoppers such as La Grande Penelope by Emile-Antoine Bourdelle, which greets visitors near the O’Fallon Perennial Walk. The exhibit runs through September 15, 2019.
