Major Sculpture Garden Announced by Wells Fargo Center for the Arts
Inaugural exhibit “Root 101” showcases works
by highly acclaimed local artist Bruce Johnson.
Opens to the Public:
June 6, 2015 Free & Accessible to the Community

The Sculpture Garden will present rotating works from contemporary regional artists that focus on monumental outdoor art incorporated into a landscaped natural setting, which will form a transition from the Center’s campus to the Sutter Hospital campus.

This is our gift to the community & we look forward to this space becoming a popular destination, inviting people to enter, walk through, or experience as an oasis for relaxation & reflection.

”Root 101,” is comprised of colossal wood sculptures made from salvaged old growth redwood, which he has been working with for 50 years. 3 years ago, Johnson acquired 80 tons (4 truckloads) of huge salvaged redwood stumps & chunks, some trees over 1,000 years old near a tributary to the Eel River.
