The Garden

April 21 - October 15, 2018

Step into The Garden and let the art of Mother Nature surround you. This free, focused exhibition blurs boundaries between the galleries and the museum grounds, immersing you in a world of flowers. Through the centuries, the garden has inspired artists to try different techniques, from abstraction to paintings, wallpaper to sculpture, and more. Discover how artists in the Crystal Bridges collection such as Martin Johnson Heade and Andy Warhol, alongside contemporary artists such as Jessica Pezalla and Kendell Carter, view the natural world.  Full of color, charm, and character, The Garden will bring your visit into full bloom.
