Colorful ceramics depicting cactus, blades of grass, pollen, and more floral inspirations have sprouted at Sherman Library & Gardens. Local artist and landscape designer Dustin Gimbel offers his unique view and a sense of whimsy in Sculptura Botanica, on display through Sept. 15. Visitors will see magnified versions of stamens, petals, and even a fun representation of a carnivorous plant. The 176 sculptures pop up across the entire property, and much of the joy comes from spotting them in varied landscapes or hanging from the ceiling. Admission is $5 for nonmembers and visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets online for contactless entry.
