Brookgreen Gardens houses one of the finest museums of American Figurative Sculpture in the country. The collection currently has over 2000 works of art by 425 artists. The addition of indoor galleries, such as the Jenniwein Gallery and Noble Gallery in the Rainey Sculpture Pavilion, afford the opportunity to exhibit smaller sculptures and include paintings, etchings and other art works by nationally and internationally renowned artists. Often these works are on loan from museums or private collections around the world, and these exhibits give visitors the opportunity to see important works of art that may otherwise be inaccessible.
The Offner Sculpture Learning and Resource Center houses hundreds of works in bronze, plaster, wax, and terra cotta, this visible storage facility allows Brookgreen to display many pieces of sculpture indoors. It also provides visitors the means to research these works and others in the collection via the on-site computer database.
The Carroll A. Campbell Jr. Center for American Sculpture is the home studio for Brookgreen’s sculptor-in-residence program and Sculpture Workshops.
