The Santa Fe Botanical Gardens presents “Morphing Nature: Site Specific Sculpture from Recovered Plant Materials” Nov. 14 through April 26.
Students from the Institute of American Indian Arts and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design are creating site-specific sculptures made from recovered plant materials cleared from the site of the Botanical Garden’s next phase. Some works also will include other found objects, both man-made and naturally occurring.
This exhibition will be located along the Garden’s Art Trail, which is accessible for handicapped visitors. An opening reception for students, faculty, garden members and the public is 3-5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14 in the Garden.
The exhibition will be on display for five and a half months. Sculptures within the exhibition will be illuminated during the Garden’s upcoming GLOW: A Winter Lights Event, which opens Dec. 4 and continues on selected evenings through Jan. 3.
Morphing Nature is the first in a series of creative collaborations between the Santa Fe Botanical Garden and educational institution partners across Santa Fe and northern New Mexico.
