Event Description

January 9, 2015 Updated Jan 9, 2015 at 12:07 PM EDT

January 10 – April 5
This winter, the Botanical Conservatory invites internationally-known artist Sayaka Ganz to create an imaginative seascape in the midst of our lush Showcase Garden using recycled materials. Discarded everyday items such as plastic forks, knives and bowls are reborn with new purpose and meaning as the artist transforms them into colorful and lifelike sculptures of jellyfish, kelp, dolphins and coral reef.
You can practice seeing the possibilities for yourself as you try your hand with “one man’s trash” in our hands-on Discovery Gallery. Let the beauty of this ocean scene inspire you to do more than recycle waste items – consider their value and start upcycling.

“Changing Tides” is sponsored by the Auer Foundation, Arts United, Artlink, City of Fort Wayne Solid Waste, Allen County Solid Waste, and the University of St. Francis School of Creative Arts.
