An amazing day at Fairchild! Who's brain child was it to combine art with nature???? Exhibiting at the garden, other than Mother Nature was, Roy Lichtenstien, Dale Chihuly (a small amount of donated pieces) and Fernando Botero! Absolutely amazing! Color was everywhere in nature and in art. My mother in law has been a volunteer at the garden for the last 25 years and is of the opinion that art and nature should not be combined. I think, it is yet another way to bring artistic knowledge/education to the public. It also helps the garden to obtain funds in order to help save tropical plants, habitats and cultures from devastation. It's an amazing place, so if you are ever in Miami don't miss the meeting of art and nature, you will for ever be changed.
