Art in the Gardens

Fine Art Series



Please join us Thursday, August 21, 5:30-7:30pm, for the opening of the art exhibit Gardens in Focus. The Gardens, in association with the Udall Foundation’s Parks in Focus program, is hosting an Opening Reception honoring 3rd, 4th and 5th grade photographers from local elementary schools Mark Twain Elementary, Positive Tomorrows and Cesar Chavez Elementary.

The photographs on display are macro photographs of nature from the students’ outings to the Myriad Botanical Gardens, Will Rogers Gardens and various local parks. Some of the young artists will be in attendance, giving you an opportunity to talk to them about their photographs, as well as purchase one to take home with you. Each of the photos on exhibit will be for sale for $20 each with the proceeds going back into the community to the Artist’s choice of programs.

Exhibition and Sale Continues through September 19.

The Gardens in Focus project was made possible by Allied Arts and Parks in Focus.
