CHAPUNGU: This extraordinary collection of over 80 contemporary Zimbabwe stone sculptures is the highly expressive artwork of the Shona people of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Africa. These hand-carved works are made of serpentine, verdite, opal, cobalt and springstone, and vary in shades of yellow, brown, red, green and gray. The pieces represent eight universally human themes and are displayed in natural outdoor settings at Denver Botanic Gardens. The sculptures range in height from three feet to 11 feet and weigh between up to 6,000 pounds. Stone carving workshops; African music, dance and storytelling presentations; cultural gardening programs; sculpture tours and more complement the exhibit.photo by Hans Alfred Loeffler

The Cloud Forest tree displays hundreds of orchids that are unbelievably beautiful. You can even visit this in the winter. The concert series through the summer is amazing - you can bring your own food and wine, sit back and listen to some awesome acts like Shawn Colvin, Indigo Girls, Bela Fleck, Taj Mahal, Joan Armatrading, k.d. Lang, Los Lobos, Keb 'Mo, and tons more.
