My Town: Final days are here for British icon's garden art exhibit

GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich.—Time is running out to see the work of a renowned British sculptor at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.

“David Nash: From Kew Gardens to Meijer Gardens” ends Aug. 17.  The summertime exhibition features more than 25 sculptures and installations by Nash, scattered across the garden grounds.  The exhibition was organized by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, where Nash served as the first artist-in-resident.

Much of Nash’s 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 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.
