GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich.—The work of renowned British sculptor David Nash is now on display at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.

“David Nash: From Kew Gardens to Meijer Gardens” features more than 25 sculptures and installations by Nash. Scattered across the Meijer Gardens grounds.  The exhibition, organized by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, will remain on display until Aug. 17.

Nash served as the first artist-in-residents at Kew Gardens, located outside central London.  Much of his work is focused on trees, through cutting, charring, casting, planting, drawing, or documentation.

“In many ways David Nash and the whole of his career which conjoins sculpture and the natural world, is at the very heart of the mission of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park,” says David Hooker, president and CEO of Meijer Gardens.

Meijer Gardens has also commissioned Nash for a site-specific planting involving dozens of young larch trees on the open hillside in The Richard and Helen DeVos Japanese Garden.  Although the garden will not open until June 2015, visitors will be able to view Nash’s planting site from the pathways.
