Blacksmith Exhibit 


Totems and tree dangles, steel animals and plants – they are all part of the Botanical Blacksmiths exhibit on display in the historic gardens of the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park. The Presidio is hosting this celebration of outdoor art from November 15, 2021 through March 31, 2022. The exhibit features over 40 pieces of outdoor ironwork including whimsical and thought provoking sculpture, botanical art, and functional pieces such as garden benches, birdbaths, and even a sundial. The work in the show was created by 12 Arizona blacksmiths who are all members of the Arizona Blacksmith Association (AABA). AABA was founded in 1981 as an affiliate of the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America (ABANA). It has as its purpose the education and artistic development of its members in the ancient and honorable skills of metalworking.


The ironwork on display is available for purchase and can be taken before the end of the exhibit.
