The Atlanta Botanical Garden continues its exciting exhibition legacy with the return of Orchid Daze
Orchid Daze is a blooming gorgeous exhibit that annually takes ove the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The Piedmont Park attraction’s adored indoor plant exhibition explores the creative interplay between vibrant flowers and art, with this year’s medium being the artform of murals.
Three Georgia-connected artists have been chosen to display their work alongside the stunning botanical displays, making this the perfect outing for art-lovers, with an intrinsically ATL artform taking over the gardens for a limited time only.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden has become renowned for intersecting art throughout their unmissable line-up of events and exhibitions.
The three artists chosen for this year’s exhibition are Niki Zarrabi and Janice Rago of Atlanta, and Lara Nguyen of Asheville.
Zarrabi is a second-generation Iranian-American, mixed-media artist who has had murals pop up across the ATL, including work with the inspiring OuterSpace Project.
Rago, who was born in Hawaii, has also had several murals appear across Atlanta, boasting beautifully inspired street art, referencing her adoration for Pacific, European cultures, as well as inspiration from her new home state of Georgia.
As for Nguyen, who works closely on public art advocacy, she’s an Vietnamese-American artist who grew up in the Midwest.
You can expect dazzling murals from these selected artists at Orchid Daze, as well as multi-media installations, all enhanced by stunning, floral landscapes will complement the artists’ work with orchids, that echo the movement found in street art and murals.
Not only is this a great way to promote local artists, national and international artists have set up their art during the garden’s previous exhibits.
This exhibit also one of the largest orchid collections at any public garden in the world, so it’s truly not to be missed.
Orchid Daze will be returning to the Atlanta Botanical Garden from Saturday, Feb 18 until Sunday, April 9. For more information and reservations, visit their website.
