Commemorative Benches

Marin Art and Garden Center is a place where members of our community have celebrated milestones in their lives for generations. Favorite views and vistas throughout this green oasis offer opportunities to rest, reflect, and honor special people while enjoying the beauty of the gardens and grounds. We welcome you to celebrate a loved one, friend or organization with a commemorative bench at Marin Art and Garden Center. Benches are available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the Center’s 11-acre grounds. Benches are offered in renewable 10-year terms and may be sponsored by individuals, groups, or organizations. Each bench will feature a bronze plaque with your chosen inscription mounted to the backrest. Our new bench style is complementary to our architecture and constructed from long-lasting hardwood. It provides comfortable seating for three people.

Bench locations include the Magnolia Circle, with views of the Sun Garden and pool; overlooking the Great Lawn, and in the natural area of the Habitat Garden.

The 10-year term includes installation, maintainance, and the personalized bronze plaque for $10,000.
