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.  It is also one of the few places in the Valley that allows visitors to experience large-scale sculpture in an outdoor setting.

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.  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 works of art will speak to you as the perfect item for your home or office setting!  Or let us work with you to customize one that is perfect for your yard!  They also provide the perfect way to recognize someone and leave a legacy.
