ZimSculpt at the Toronto Botanical Garden

ZimSculpt is a stunning new exhibit to the Toronto Botanical Garden this summer. Curator Vivienne Croisette has brought 100+ sculptures across the world from Zimbabwe to Toronto for a free exhibit that will run daily until Sunday September 30th.

All ZimSculpt sculptures are for sale and there is also a marketplace where you may purchase smaller sculptures too. Vivienne will host coffee chats on Saturday and Sundays mornings and there are also tours available to get a behind the scenes perspective into the sculptures.

Two sculptors – Brighton Layson and Passmore Mupindiko – are part of the ZimSculpt team that has travelled to Toronto and will live-sculpt brand new sculptures next to the Marketplace Tent. Don’t miss the opportunity to see them create during their stay.

I was lucky to learn about this exhibit as Vivienne is a friend of a friend of mine. It did not disappoint. The ZimSculpt modern stone sculptures are simply amazing and I love how many portray strong women and family life. You truly need a few hours to roam and appreciate all the pieces that are placed throughout the gardens. If you live and/or visiting Toronto in August and September, I highly recommend planning a visit to explore and discover ZimSculpt for yourself.

Enjoy!
