2018 Jean & Alfred Goldstein Exhibition Series Introduces

Warhol Flowers in the Factory February 11 - June 30th, 2018

'As part of this exhibition, the grounds of Selby Gardens have become Warhol’s floral playground. Several outdoor plant scenes – or vignettes – capture the playful spirit of the artist using striking colors, modular planters that are ever-changing in their patterns and unexpected pop culture references. Also look for special signage that identifies living plants that are within the same plant families of the plants featured in our museum; Hibiscus comes from the Malvaceae, or mallow family, and the poinsettia is part of the Euphorbiaceae family.'

THE CONSERVATORY: Painting With Plants

In the tropical conservatory, our horticultural designers have drawn inspiration from Warhol’s work, using the repetition of shapes and textures, along with bright pops of color, to create vivid scenes of living art. Lead by the gravity-defying features that make epiphytes so versatile and resilient, plants on display such as bromeliads, ferns and orchids flout conventional presentations.
