Imaginary Worlds makes an encore this spring with new storybook-themed plant sculptures, including ones from Alice in Wonderland, joining many favorite installations from 2018 dressed in all-new attire.
This spring’s Imaginary Worlds, presented May 11 – Oct. 27 at both gardens, features a massive installation from Alice in Wonderland in the Skyline Garden. The favorite children’s tale plays out with a sleeping Alice relaxing in the Garden, while an enormous chess board and oversized card characters occupy the event lawn, with a giant Cheshire Cat poised nearby. A giant White Rabbit is floating in the pond in an upside down umbrella. In addition, many of the 2018 sculptures will be outfitted with different plants, staged in surprisingly new locations or both.
