Thousands of visitors each year make their way to Jack Cashin’s beautiful Chukkar Farm in Cherokee County. The property, which contains over 100 acres of pastures, woods, a river crossing, polo field and 26-acre lake, is home to Sunday polo matches, James Casto’s Home by Dark concert series, weddings, fundraisers and corporate outings.

This month, Cashin, a passionate supporter of the arts, will invite the public to the grand opening celebration of his farm’s newest addition, Cashin’s Sculpture Garden.

Located along an existing horse-riding trail, gently meandering through a sun-dappled hardwood forest, Cashin’s Sculpture Garden offers visitors the opportunity to experience a wide variety of large scale sculptures at a leisurely pace, surrounded by bird song, gentle breezes and warm sunshine. Artist-painted benches encourage lingering and contemplation.

The sculpture garden is being built in three phases with a total of 54 sculpture sites and two outdoor classroom areas for demonstrations, artist talks and gatherings. The artist roster includes many well-known professional artists in Georgia and North Carolina who work with metal, stone, marble and wood. Artistic styles range from abstract to representational.

During the grand opening May 9, from 1 to 4 p.m., Roswell Dance Theatre dancers will perform along the trail while classical music from Atlanta Plays it Forward will be played live in the forest. Several restaurants will provide refreshments, and performers from the Imperial Opa Circus will entertain guests. All activities are free of charge and everyone is welcome.

Plans are in the works to add a Native American medicine wheel garden, labyrinths and a maze that will make Chukkar Farm Polo Club and Cashin’s Sculpture Garden a destination where visitors can stay for the day, enjoy a picnic and have a unique outdoor art experience.
