Capturing the Unseen Power of the Natural World

Steve Tobin’s Intertwined: Exploring Nature’s Networks features monumental sculptures by the American artist, who is world-renowned for his works in glass, bronze, ceramic, and steel. 

The exhibition features pieces from several series – including modernist Steelroots, unearthed Bronze Roots, stainless steel Clouds, and bronze and steel Nests with magical eggs – all of which dramatically capture the unseen power of the natural world while celebrating the importance of the systems that give life to the Garden’s tropical, sub-tropical, and arid collections.

Steve Tobin’s Intertwined is included in the cost of general admission to the Houston Botanic Garden. Visitors can also explore the display gardens, natural ecosystem areas, and walking trails on the Garden’s 132-acre site.

Friday-Sunday: $15/adult, $10/child (3-15), $10/student (with valid ID)

Monday-Thursday: $12.50/adult, $8/child (3-15), $8/student (with valid ID)
