EXHIBIT — Through Feb. 26
Brooklyn Botanical Garden
900 Washington Ave., Brooklyn, New York
The winter gloom can often inspire indoor gardens to bloom. On display at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Steinhardt Conservatory is a creative exhibit pairing delicate terrariums with art installations by Brooklyn artist Jae Hi Ahn. Ahn uses simple artificial materials such as plastic tubes and wires to pay tribute to the organic forms of the natural world. Long rows of terrariums housed in various vessels showcase unique miniature plant worlds on tables, while some of Ahn’s innovative sculptures hang from skylights.
The garden is open until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday until March 11 and until 6 p.m. from March 13 to November 4; weekday admission is free.
