Artscape featured more than 90 outstanding artists from around the country showcase their art in the garden including 46 new artists showcasing painting, sculpture, photography, jewelry, glass and more. Named by Architectural Digest as one of the "15 Most Breathtaking Botanical Gardens to Visit This Season,” the Dallas Arboretum is a perfect complement to the beautiful artwork selected for the show.
