Tour the New Art Galleries

October 12, 2020 Karina Nabors , Associate Director of Learning Engagement & Interpretation

Have you seen the new art galleries yet? Why not come see them in the company of a curator or a docent? Learn about Fred the Fungus, see a book that dates to the Renaissance, wander through a ghost forest, and marvel at the detail of an illustrated flowering yucca or pygmy nuthatch.

Ghost Forest

Our tours are small-group conversations that give you the opportunity to ask questions, share your thoughts and learn interesting details about all the exhibitions on view. 

Exhibitions change regularly but the four exhibitions currently on view are:

  • Ghost Forest by Melanie Walker: a space that evokes the experience of wandering through an aspen forest
  • Pink Lemonade Hope by Koko Bayer: an installation that reminds us of the power of optimism
  • Garden & Haven: botanical illustrations that highlight gardens as places of sanctuary and renewal  
  • From the Vault: highlights from the Gardens’ natural history, library and art collections
Kimono and book
