Art for the Garden

Imagine a world where every public park has a resident artist making site specific installations that playfully delight and engage you.  Such was  the case at the Van Duzen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver BC where, a few years back, they hired Nicole Dextras to spend the summer making art in their park.   See more of the results here. She likes to use words and plants together.    Ms. Dextras has moved on to other things, most notably her Weed Robes which have been getting lots of press.  (Click here to see those).  And also here to see a recent update Ms. Dextras sent me about the robes. But when we open the imaginary art gallery, we'll definitely want Ms. Dextras to do some site specific installations on the grounds!
