Event Details

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden presents the return of the international blockbuster exhibit ZimSculpt, a world-renowned collection of hand-selected, modern Zimbabwean stone sculptures. As the signature event of summer at the Arboretum, ZimSculpt runs from May 1 to Aug. 8.

To celebrate the opening day of ZimSculpt, the Dallas Arboretum hosts its first Black Heritage Celebration May 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The day is filled with events surrounding ZimSculpt, cooking demonstrations and Black-owned businesses showcasing and selling their crafts. At 1 p.m. in the Jonsson Color Garden, visitors are invited to watch the Black Crown fashion show highlighting local Black designers. From 2 to 4 p.m., the Don Diego Band performs jazz and R&B.

ZimSculpt features the talent of several contemporary Zimbabwean artists with more than 100 hand-selected, exquisite sculptures artfully displayed throughout the garden. These contemporary pieces, created by the Shona people of Zimbabwe, are carved from various types of serpentine and semi-precious stone, often weighing tons, and can be as large as seven feet tall.

Tickets must be pre-purchased online or by calling 214-515-6615. Wearing a face covering is required for all guests 5 years of age while visiting the Dallas Arboretum, unless medically unable to do so.
