Sculpture Garden

The Shemer Art Center & Museum sits on a nearly 3.5-acre site at the base of Camelback Mountain.  Since its inception in 1984 the Shemer Art Center has focused on exhibiting the work of local, emerging artists within its interior galleries.

Outside, the grounds, gardens and orchard area of the Shemer Art Center provide a tranquil setting for these large-scale outdoor sculpture, produced by some of Arizona’s premier sculptors. In fact, it is one of the few places in the Valley that allows visitors to experience large-scale sculptures together in an outdoor setting.

Most of the works on display in the Sculpture Garden are for sale, and the proceeds from each sale benefit both the artist and the Shemer Art Center.

We hope that while you are here you are able to experience the Sculpture Garden on the grounds of the Shemer and view these wonderful sculptures at this historic home.  Perhaps one of these sculptures will appeal to you as the perfect complement to your home or office setting!  Or let us introduce you to one of our artists, to customize something especially for you!

A sculpture also provides the perfect way to recognize someone or leave a legacy.


The Shemer Art Center is now accepting entries for its upcoming outdoor exhibition, COLOR IN MOTION!

COLOR IN MOTION will be a juried exhibition of playful, outdoor sculptures that combine color and motion. Sculptures selected for this exhibition by juror Jack Gron will be kinetic or demonstrate movement in design. This exhibition will be unveiled this Fall, and then be on display for two years, or until they are sold!
