Metamorphosis

On this cold and dreary spring day, I decided to visit the Metamorphosis display at Lauritzen Gardens again. It was balmy in the upper greenhouse, so much that my lenses fogged over. The display includes artwork from by Sayaka Ganz and Aurora Robson.

From the Laurtizen Gardens website:
Millions of pieces of plastic find their way into landfills and watersheds every year, causing harm and producing pollution to both wildlife and human beings. This winter and spring, Lauritzen Gardens will present an exhibit constructed of found, recycled and reused plastic objects. Equal parts artistic and educational, this exhibit will feature fine art, accompanied by a message of environmental stewardship and will change the way that you see plastic. From birds to aquatic creatures to a massive vortex, Sayaka Ganz and Aurora Robson will show how beautiful reclaimed materials can be. As Ganz says, “When we think of these things as beautiful, we value them. If we value our resources we will waste less.”

The exhibit is open January 20 through May 13, 2018 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. 

A few things were blooming in the greenhouse:
