South African artist Daniel Popper’s largest exhibition in the world is getting even bigger. On June 17, The Morton Arboretum near Chicago will unveil three new sculptures to join the popular Human+Nature exhibition’s five current pieces.
The exhibition expansion will include two large-scale sculptures and a smaller-scale centennial sculpture created to commemorate the Arboretum’s 100-year anniversary celebration.
The centennial sculpture will call the Arboretum’s core Arbor Court area outside the Visitor Center home, while the large-scale figures will adorn Bulb Meadow near the Maple Collection on the East Side (Parking Lot 14) and a secluded wooded area near Lake Marmo on the West Side (Parking Lot 29).
Human+Nature opened May 28, 2021, and is scheduled to run through March 2023. The exhibition is included free with advance timed-entry admission to the Arboretum. For tickets, visit mortonarb.org/visit-the-arboretum.
