Set amidst the spectacular background of summer floral displays at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, the 25th anniversary of Art in the Gardens (AIG) is fast approaching. The day-long juried art event will be held on Saturday, August 5 from 11AM to 5PM. Join us in a celebration of creative expression, gorgeous gardens, music, beer, wine, and food. Over the past quarter of a century, AIG has showcased extraordinary creations such as ceramics, glass, paintings, sculpture, textiles, and woodworking. This year’s event will include a special focus on "art in action" giving everyone a chance to witness the creative process involved in several mediums. Spend the day strolling through our beautiful garden, meeting California artists while viewing a multitude of art on display and for sale, sipping regional wines and craft beers, listening to wonderful music, and tasting the freshest culinary creations from around Mendocino County.
