Art Park, the Woodson Art Museum’s interactive gallery, is arguably one of the most popular spaces at 700 N. 12th Street. While the spring glass exhibitions are well underway, team Art Park is now focused on our next round of re-landscaping for the summer exhibition, Abundant Future: Cultivating Diversity in Garden, Farm, and Field. Abundant Future consists of botanical artworks depicting cultivated plant species such as eggplants, radishes, and ancient grains like millet and sorghum.
Finding ways to excite and intrigue students means getting creative. In my experience, the popular writing adage “it’s better to show than tell” applies when developing content for guided gallery experiences.
