Desert Botanical Garden’s newest art exhibition is traveling straight from Milan to bring Wild Rising by Cracking Art—an installation of more than 1,000 animal sculptures made from colorful and recyclable plastic. Visitors of all ages will be drawn to engage these vibrant creatures and to discover that plastic does not have to end up in landfills, but it can be reinvented into something eye catching and thought provoking.
Join the conversation of Wild Rising by Cracking Art with Elephant in the Room, a thought-provoking installation in Ottosen Gallery that invites visitors to dig into rotating worldly topics and commit to reducing human impact on the natural world. The interactive exhibit will feature topics related to biodiversity and climate change, including environmental happiness, cactus as a threatened species and the culture of convenience.
Desert Botanical Garden and Gertrude's Restaurant will close at 3 p.m. on Feb. 21 with last general admission at 2 p.m. The Garden and Gertrude's Restaurant will be closed Feb. 22 - 23 for Devour Culinary Classic.
