UC Riverside Botanic Gardens Art in the Gardens

Art in the Gardens


Every November the UCR Botanic Gardens hosts an outreach event where curated items from local artisans are offered for sale. Come spend a pleasant day 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 from local artists while supporting the programs and activities of the UCR Botanic Gardens.

All vehicles parked on campus are required to have a valid parking permit at all times. The Community Parking Program will provide a link to a parking app that allows guests to register their license plate on ParkMobile and park for free in Lot 13 Red when they arrive on campus for this event. Guests may also park in Lot 13 Blue without a virtual parking permit for this event.
