Art Exhibits

Olbrich Botanical Gardens appreciates all the artists who utilize our gardens for inspiration and many who have shared their work in the Evjue Commons.

However, Olbrich staff realized that the Evjue Commons lacks gallery amenities that enhance the art and keep it secure and has therefore suspended individual artists' shows in that space. In the future, there may be opportunities for community-focused groups who produce art within the community. These opportunities will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

We encourage everyone who visits Olbrich Botanical Gardens to enjoy our permanent art collection in the Outdoor Gardens and Bolz Conservatory.

Olbrich’s long range facilities master plan will provide additional space that may be available at some future date.
