DBG has done it again!!!



KIZUNA: EAST MEETS WEST
"This season’s signature exhibition, Kizuna: West Meets East, brings together two installation artists working in bamboo: Tetsunori Kawana and Stephen Talasnik. Through different working methods, both artists employed this versatile natural material to create large site-specific works for the Gardens." ( quote from the Denver Botanic Gardens Website).
We had the opportunity to head down to the Denver Botanic Gardens on a beautiful Sunday.  The crowd were large and two weddings were going on....delightful.  The exhibition, "Kizuna: East meets West", was spectacular.  If you get the chance and happen to be in Denver, please don't miss this one.  It's worth the admission!!


Installations at the lily pond
They floated and swirled in soft circles





Plantings and the installations
compliment each other


Up close, you can see the how it was put together
These were all installed "on site"
an amazing amount of work, but expressive in their beauty.





Plantings have been added to enhance
the exhibit


Stunning!
Every year, the Gardens are outdoing their
previous exhibits.

Also, there is a new Bonsai Garden
which is just spectacular in it's infancy.
DBG has done it again!!

LOVE THIS. The art of nature is profound when we direct it into forms such as this. What a fabulous day with nature's beauty.
