New Art installations coming April 2012
In honor of Earth Day, artworks will be installed throughout The Gardens at SIUE. Works will be tied to Earth Day through the use of earth-aware themes, sustainable methods and materials, horticulture or arboriculture, and/or other 'green' approaches to art. The Gardens welcomed both existing works and site-specific proposals. The artists are strongly encouraged to visit the Gardens to explore its environment for inspiration. Some works will biodegrade naturally, others will be installed for an artist-specified period of time, and (if appropriate) be considered for permanent installation.
