This has less to do with gardening and more about art. But with a moniker of Art of Gardening, I would be remiss to not inject some art occasionally. Not that I need justification. I can post about aphid infestations, I can certainly post about more enlightening fare.
This past Saturday was Art Alive, an art show sponsored by the Albright Knox Art Gallery encouraging groups to recreate works of art, by being the works of art. And with cash prizes! It was held on the lawn of the Albright Knox, so technically it’s temporary lawn art, so I feel comfortable posting about it on a garden blog. Here’s a few of what we saw.
Georges Seurat, Models (detail), 1887-8
Above and below, another Seurat, this one featuring my daughter–covering themselves with candy dots and dot stickers to bring home the pointillist aspect. They also handed out free candy. This may have contributed to them receiving the “People’s Choice” award, for their category, for the day.
