Flora: Growing Inspirations

Flora: Growing Inspirations
A Sculpture Exhibition presented by
The United States Botanic Garden and The Washington Sculptors Group
May 23, 2009 through October 12, 2009

Artists Reception: Thursday, May 28, 2009 6 - 8 pm

"This exhibit features a series of highly stylized garden rooms on the Conservatory Terrace that immerse the visitor in a vibrant, albeit slow, form of performance art. Within the rooms and in an adjoining gallery are featured original sculptures inspired by plants. The sculptures, selected by a jury from a national competition, celebrate the symbolic and aesthetic role of plants in culture. Contemporary artists have drawn on the diversity of plant form and the fundamental strength of plants’ life force for powerful metaphors that comment on the state of modern society and individual human existence."
