Local artist Rik Hermanson began designing the Uncommon Garden in 2002, starting from a simple plan to enhance the owner’s backyard. Today, after hundreds of tons of rocks, concrete, soil, boulders, water and plants have been hauled in, this formerly ordinary backyard is an intricate web of sculptural landscapes. This “secret” garden is privately owned and is open to the public as an ArtsCenter fundraising benefit for one day only. Come take a look inside the Uncommon Garden, where fire breathing dragons await!
