The Curious Garden features 11 site-specific installations created to share a story about the Garden’s plant collections and plant conservation work by prompting visitors to make a discovery, ask questions and provoke a discussion. Bold, often unexpected, manmade and altered natural materials are employed to direct the eye to focus on the simple beauty of nature. Think dozens of multi-colored spray-painted trees. A mysterious display of scientific lab glassware filled with an array of colorful liquids. Dozens of sparkly old chandeliers dripping with plants.
On display through October 29, 2017 Visit: Atlantabg.org
