Henry Moore sculptures at the Denver Botanic Gardens

Posted By on Fri, Jan 29, 2010 at 1:39 PM

This isn't the best of time of year to visit a public garden, but the Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street and Chatfield is putting this downtime to good use. After tomorrow, both locations can boast outdoor art by one of the most important British sculptors of the 20th century, Henry Moore.

Twenty Moores are in the process of installation at both sites, finishing today. Many of the works clock in at a ton and are over 10 feet tall; one 135-ton crane is required to hoist two pieces over the walls of the gardens.

The exhibit, Moore in the Gardens, formally opens on March 8, and will be on display through Jan. 31, 2011.

So much Moore to love.
