ART Gardens are portable, temporary murals that add bright spots of color to any landscape, just like a garden. Each pillar is meant to be an IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE with fabulous paintings, textiles, lights, sound, and QR codes to deliver more information along with videos.
ART Gardens can be rented or purchased by municipalities to place inside public parks, by festival and event organizers, and by private individuals and companies. They are PERFECT for social distancing while adding a new twist to your landscape or event. ART Gardens can be installed on grass or cement and come in a wide variety of subject matters.
The ART Gardens chosen for ArtPrize 2021 showcased hand work traditionally created by women that are used to preserve customs, traditions and to tell the stories of their cultural history. Embroidery, quilting, weaving, cross stitching and henna drawings were featured along with SEED project designs.
