"Sculpture should always at first sight have some obscurities, and further meanings. People should want to go on looking and thinking; it should never tell about itself immediately." -Henry Moore, 1968

Now through January 31, 2011, there is a phenomenal exhibit of Henry Moore's work on display at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Visitors will find monumental reclining figures and colossal abstracted forms throughout the Gardens’ York Street location; two works stand in front of a unique foothills backdrop at the Chatfield site. Their are tours and activities you can include in your visit, or just meander peacefully through the beautiful grounds and enjoy the sights, which are just as lovely on a crisp Colorado winter's day as they are in the lush summer. Fun for all ages, this exhibit is a must see!
