Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC, Offers Patriotic Sculpture Exhibit
Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Red, White, and Blue: American Sculpture for and by Veterans, on view in the Rainey Sculpture Pavilion through July 25, 2010.
A number of the artworks at Brookgreen Gardens have patriotic themes or were designed originally as American war memorials. These iconic images represent freedom, strength, victory, and loss as shown through the eyes of talented sculptors. Red, White, and Blue displays models of several well known monuments including the Marine Corps Memorial by Felix de Weldon, the US Navy Memorial by Stanley Bleifeld, the Korean War Veterans Memorial by Frank Gaylord, and the Vietnam Women's Memorial by Glenna Goodacre. The exhibit is free with garden admission.
Brookgreen's "Red, White, and Blue Salute to Veterans", an event held each Memorial Day Weekend, honors those who served by placing American flags at patriotic sculptures and sculptors in the gardens. A handout provided in the gallery lists the artists in the Brookgreen collection that served in the military and any war memorials that they created. In this exhibit, we celebrate our men and women in uniform, past and present, always remembering that freedom is not free.
