Art on Site
June 1, 2004 to March 21, 2005

Art on Site brings a series of six site-specific art installations to Olbrich Botanical Gardens beginning in June 2004 and continuing through spring 2005. Installations range from a 45-foot circular "flower painting" to a 12-foot mixed-media charm bracelet to a construction of willow branches in Olbrich's Rock Garden pond. In addition, students from Malcolm Shabazz City High School will work with participating artists to create a summer-long series of mowed designs in Olbrich's Great Lawn.
