Art in The Gardens

Every November the UCR Botanic Gardens hosts a fundraiser where curated items from local artisans are offered for sale. Come spend a pleasant afternoon strolling through Alder Canyon, where California artists and craftspersons are showcased representing a variety of media including ceramics, jewelry, mosaics, metal work, fiber arts, wood, and photography. Art in the Gardens is a great opportunity to shop early for the holidays while supporting the programs and activities of the UCR Botanic Gardens.
