(PRESS RELEASE)_(West Palm Beach, FL – March 9, 2022) Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden hosted two days (March 2-3) of special events and guided tours spotlighting Sean Kenney, the artist behind the popular exhibition Nature POP!, who was visiting from his home in the Netherlands. Mounts welcomed over 300 distinguished sponsors, members, elementary school students, elected officials, and representatives from three countywide organizations: the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, Discover the Palm Beaches, and the Palm Beach County Tourism Development Council.
Making its Florida debut at Mounts through May 1, the exhibition features over 40 sculptures made from more than 800,000 LEGO® pieces. It explores the beauty of nature through highly stylized, colorful displays that stand in striking contrast with their surroundings. Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature POP! blends art, science, and innovation in the display of these sculptures. Each sculpture’s site placement was carefully curated and the surrounding landscaping designed and installed by the Mounts Botanical Horticulture Team.
Lead Sponsor for Nature POP! is Hanley Foundation. Select sculptures and murals are sponsored by Renée Rotta, Lewis Pollack and Iggy; Zimmerman Tree Service; TD Bank; Braman Motorcars-Club Braman; and an anonymous donor.
Exploring what to see and do in North Palm Beach and the South Florida area. Your hosts are Pam and Gerry Barker.
