Discover exclusive contemporary masterpieces in the enchanting Sagamore Sculpture Garden. Our garden has welcomed thousands of visitors to Miami Beach, showcasing iconic works by leading contemporary artists. Under the direction of Sagamore’s Principal, Ronit Neuman (pictured above with daughters Dr. Danielle Neuman and Gaby Neuman), and Art Advisor, Sebastien Laboureau, our newly renovated Sculpture Garden has transformed our grounds into an outdoor oasis of the finest internationally-acclaimed contemporary sculptures.
The garden features lush greenery interwoven with palms and the flora of South Florida. The tranquil setting was designed to invite our guests to relax, contemplate, and relish the interplay of art and Miami Beach.
“Sculpture is the art of the intelligence.” - Pablo Picasso
We are delighted to have our Sculpture Garden inaugurated with award-winning works by esteemed Australian artists Gillie and Marc. The collaborative artist couple from Australia are passionate eco-warriors, with a deep respect for the spiritual bond between humans and animals - a conviction that resonates in their art. Most famously known for their large sculpture The Last Three, depicting the last of the Northern White Rhinos, Gillie and Marc are finalists for the Archibald Prize, a prestigious prize awarded to portraiture in Australian art.
Around the time of this coveted recognition, Gillie and Marc created their first human-animal hybrid sculptures which would come to be known as the beloved characters, Dogman and Rabbitwoman. The pair tells the autobiographical tale of two unlikely animal kingdom companions coming together in love and friendship to promote diversity and acceptance through love. Gillie and Marc’s Rabbitwoman, Paparazzi Dogs, and more are on display now in the Sagamore Hotel Sculpture Garden.
“Sometimes in a sculpture it's interesting to me what's stylized and what's natural and how those forms interrelate, as they interrelate in ourselves.” - Charles Ray
