Grass Roots: A Garden of Art & Innovation
Oct 21 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Become inspired by the natural beauty of Krohn Conservatory’s 2017 Fall Show! Look around and you will find beauty everywhere, but come and see how art first began with nature itself and how it has inspired so many artists throughout history. Prints of well known art will show the inspiration that comes from local to world renowned artists. See how their eclectic styles are united by the influence of nature! Walk our Fibonacci labyrinth as you admire the radiant array of chrysanthemums, as painted by Monet. Stroll by the cypress trees of Van Gogh, roses of Dali, and the botanical architecture of a local company, Applied Imagination that fills the room. Cheerful marigolds, striking cannas, vibrant impatiens, and rich asters are saturated in gorgeous fall colors as they paint the room with the harmony of art and nature!
