Ends Today

*The Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum is temporarily closed from Apr 9 to May 20. The museum will be open from May 21.

In her 1965 posthumous work “Sense of Wonder,” marine biologist and “Silent Spring” author Rachel Carson wrote about growing up surrounded by nature and the importance of looking at the world with a feeling of awe and mystery. Artists living today also convey something crucial, looking through a lens of sensitive curiosity and visualizing through a variety of expressive methods what we overlook in everyday life. This exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography, and video art forms its own kind of garden, introducing works by seven artists of our era who offer hints for how to commune with nature and have meaningful encounters.
