Wild Rising by Cracking Art

DATE: Now - May 10, 2020
TIME: 8:00 am – 8:00 pm
PRICE: Free with general admission



Desert Botanical Garden’s newest art exhibition is traveling straight from Milan to bring Wild Rising by Cracking Art—this installation is a more than 1,000 animal sculptures art exhibit in Phoenix, Arizona made from colorful and recyclable plastic. Wild Rising is included in the cost of general admission and membership.
The vibrant art forms are the creations of Cracking Art, a collective of artists who specialize in plastic as an artistic medium with the intention of radically changing the history of art through a strong social and environmental commitment. The creatures featured in Wild Rising not only capture the magnificence of nature but also address global and local sustainability and conservation issues, including climate change, plastic in the oceans and the importance of recycling.
Visitors of all ages will be drawn to engage with these vibrant animal sculpture creations and discover their messages of stewardship for our environment with this art exhibit. With 12 installations, visitors will see 20 penguins posing among the cactus and 40 majestic grey wolves guarding the Sybil B. Harrington Cactus and Succulent Galleries.
