The NEA awards a grant to the Arboretum
The National Endowment for the Arts award to the Arboretum enable us to continue our groundbreaking 2016 exhibit of techno-botanical art in the garden. The newly-funded art exhibit, developed by curator Shirley Watts, will feature video and interactive digital installations within the Arboretum’s diverse botanical landscape. The aim is to move art out of a traditional museum setting and utilize technology to explore humankind’s changing relationship with nature, as well as our collective and individual response to the seismic environmental shifts that are remaking our world. The exhibit is scheduled for Spring 2019.
