Join us for a River City Queen Boat Ride and lunch at the Machine Shed. The exhibition is Munro’s eighth large-scale garden exhibition in the U.S. The gardens and Conservatory will provide a stunning backdrop for eight sculptures, including Munro’s iconic “Field of Light” and “Water-Towers.” Two new works will also debut — “Sun,” a monumental globe, suspended inside the Conservatory, and “Don’s Flamingos,” a playful homage to the designer of the pink lawn flamingo, Don Featherstone. Munro said, “It is a great privilege to create an exhibition at Nicholas Conservatory, and I was captured by the landscape of the garden and the Rock River adjacent. Gardens are very special to me because it’s an opportunity to re-engage people with real life, with the beauty of a garden, and that sense was with me when I visited the Conservatory. Part of the aim of these garden exhibitions is to get people who aren’t necessarily familiar with a garden to visit and experience such a beautiful place to be. I love the challenge presented to me by the Conservatory, of seeking out the balance that exists between contemporary art, landscapes, and architecture.” Transportation is provided via park district van. This trip is co-oped with Huntley and Crystal Lake Park Districts.
