Houston Botanic Garden Opens Art In The Garden Exhibit

Celebrate BioDiversity at the Houston Botanic Garden.

In honor of its one-year anniversary, the Houston Botanic Garden is hosting its first outdoor art exposition, “Art in the Garden: Celebrating BioDiversity!”

From now until next summer, the Houston Botanic Garden is showcasing Art in the Garden. The exhibition is a collaboration between HBG and Lawdale Art and Performance Center and features a variety of installations from local artists imploring themes of community, relationship, and biodiversity.

“Building on Houston’s vibrant local arts scene, ‘Art in the Garden: Celebrating Biodiversity!’ will engage visitors with contemporary artwork that encourages a deeper connection between our community and the natural environment, while illuminating the extraordinary diversity of the living world,” the botanic garden wrote in a press release.

“By presenting artworks outside of the traditional gallery setting and in the context of the Garden, ‘Art in the Garden: Celebrating Biodiversity!’ aligns with the Garden’s mission to enrich life through discovery, education, and the conservation of the natural environment. At the same time, the exhibition will advance Lawndale’s mission of supporting Houston artists and the role their art plays in inspiring and informing the world around us.”


Featured artists include: Lina Dib, Liss LaFleur, Virginia Lee Montgomery, Gerardo Rosales, Jen Rose, and Joyce Matula Welch.

In addition to the artwork, Art in the Garden will feature a variety of artists talks, workshops, guided twilight walks, and a children’s discovery trail.

Art in the Garden: Celebrating BioDiversity is now open at One Botanic Lane at the Houston Botanic Garden. Access is included in the cost of general admission, priced at $15 for adults, $10 for children and students on Fridays through Sundays. Discount admission is available from Mondays through Thursdays. HBG is open from 9 am to 5 pm daily.
