Big Sur Spirit Garden
A favorite among local art-lovers, the Big Sur Spirit Garden (Hwy. 1, Loma Vista, 831/667-1300, www.bigsurspiritgarden.com, daily 9 a.m.–6 p.m.) changes a little almost every day. The “garden” part includes a variety of exotic plants, while the “spirit” part devotes itself to modern and postmodern Fair Trade art from as nearby as a few miles and as far away as India.
The artwork tends toward brightly colored small sculptures done in a childlike, exuberant style. The Spirit Garden offers educational programs, community celebrations, musical events, and more.
Call ahead for information on upcoming events.
