Wild Rising by Cracking Art

Now - May 10, 2020

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.

Elephant in the Room

This exhibit will be closed Nov. 22 – 28 and will reopen on Friday, Nov. 29

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.
