Art in the Garden. Shayne Dark is the Artist in Residence at Brooklyn Botanic Garden during July.

Shayne Dark is known for making complex sculptures from tree branches, limbs, trunks, and roots that evoke nature while taking on majestic new forms.

This July, you can watch the Canadian sculptor at work on the grounds of Brooklyn Botanic Garden as he creates a new site-specific, large-scale installation using locally sourced materials. This new work along with three of his existing pieces will remain on display until summer 2017.

Shayne Dark will be in residence at Brooklyn Botanic Garden from 13 to 29 July 2016.
