The Garden at Night and Bartram’s Boxes Remix
Two exhibitions featuring nocturnal botanical garden photography and boxes inspired by a Colonial-era botanist’s shipping crates reveal seldom-glimpsed nighttime scenes and artists’ reimagined, container creations are on display at the Woodson Art Museum June 6 - August 30, 2015. “The Garden at Night: A Photographic Journey” comprises photographs of after-dark journeys through North American botanical gardens, captured by Linda Rutenberg and Roger Leeon using only moonlight and flashlights for illumination. “Bartram’s Boxes Remix” features contemporary artists’ wooden boxes, inspired by colonial-era ones engineered to safely ship plant specimens to Europe.
