Overview
Additional Information

Rockford Park District’s Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens invites the public to view unique works of art this summer as it hosts “R4: recycled/reclaimed/reused/recrafted.” The show is by member artists of Chicago Sculpture International, and features sculptures created from recycled and reclaimed materials, with artwork placed among the lush tropical plants in Nicholas Conservatory. 

Chicago Sculpture International is an affiliate organization of the International Sculpture Center, and holds exhibits throughout the Chicago area; including “Form in Flora” exhibits at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Conservatory; the exhibits were the inspiration for R4 at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens.

Conservatory visitors can also stroll along the adjacent Rock River Recreation Path to view the more than 10 public art sculptures that line a two-mile portion of the path.

Admission fees vary by age and county residency; discounted fees apply to seniors, veterans, youth, and children. Visit www.nicholasconservatory.com for complete fee listings.
