See massive outdoor sculptures created exclusively for The Morton Arboretum rise above the natural landscapes. The Morton Arboretum sculpture exhibition will deeply connect us to the trees like never before.
Human+Nature will be South African artist Daniel Popper’s largest exhibition to date. 20- to 25-foot-tall sculptures will be installed across 1700 acres of The Morton Arboretum. Using thought-provoking human forms paired with elements of nature, each piece will bring attention to the connections between humans and the trees and create a sense of awe and wonder. The installations will include a towering interpretation of a Mother Nature figure welcoming Arboretum visitors to interact by walking inside the sculpture.

The Human+Nature exhibit will be free of charge with general Arboretum admission. Timed-entry passes and tickets are required for all guests and will help ensure paced arrivals and moderated attendance numbers. You must purchase your timed-entry tickets in advance.
