Fort Worth Botanic Garden I BRIT is a 115-acre living museum, containing plants from around the world as well as an extensive sculpture collection installed amidst the beauty of our gardens. We hold over thirty pieces of outdoor sculpture, including artists such as Gene Owens, Glenna Goodacre, Cameron Schoepp, Chris Powell, Charles T. Williams, and Patrick Dougherty.

Monthly docent-guided tours of our outdoor sculpture collection are available the first Saturday of each month, with capacity at 15 participants. First-come, first-served.

About FWBG | BRIT Art Exhibitions

FWBG | BRIT presents a variety of venues across our campus in which to enjoy art related to, and in, nature. 

The BRIT building offers two distinctive art viewing spaces in the BRIT building: the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the smaller, more intimate Upper Atrium Collections Gallery. The Samples Exhibit Hall showcases botanical art and artwork dealing with topics such as ecology, plants, sustainability, conservation, and the natural world – we highlight work by local and national artists, both well-known and emerging. The Upper Atrium Collections Gallery features a rotation of botanical and nature-based prints from our Library collection, including The Arader Natural History Collection of Art. We honor and celebrate the traditional roots of botanical art, while also expanding and redefining the field for the 21st century.

Art can also be enjoyed throughout The Garden, with permanent outdoor sculpture installed along our many groves, paths, and clearings. We occasionally welcome contemporary sculptors to install large-scale artworks in our gardens for visitors to enjoy and reflect upon.
