Orchid Daze

Sunday, March 3, 2013

Orchid Daze has come to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The new installation uses  juxtapositions of fanciful flowers and playful objects inspired by surrealist imagination. Orchids of all shapes and colors transport visitors into a living piece of artwork inside the Fuqua Conservatory. The installation runs until April 14.
