Houston Botanic Garden presents "Steve Tobin’s Intertwined: Exploring Nature’s Networks," an exhibition that features monumental sculptures by the American artist, who is world-renowned for his works in glass, bronze, ceramic and steel, including “Trinity Root,” a memorial cast from a tree that protected a New York City cathedral on 9/11.

In Houston, Tobin’s works will spiral in elegant forms as much as 30 feet above the natural beauty of the Bayou City’s living museum for plants – the Houston Botanic Garden. The exhibition features pieces from several series, including stainless steel “Clouds,” bronze and steel “Nests” with magical eggs, unearthed “Bronze Roots” and modernist “Steelroots,” 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.

Guests are encouraged to engage with the sculptures, wander beneath them and reflect on their own powerful roots of heritage, family and community.
