Winter Workspace Workshop: Vertical Gardening–Interacting with Living Art


Glyndor Gallery & Ecology Building

Register for this event

Join Winter Workspace artist Ivan Stojakovic in creating a large-scale, collaborative work of living art. Using succulent plants and sculptural materials, make choices in the composition that address environmental issues relevant to the Bronx. In the end, see how the final work turns from horizontal to vertical, from the planting bed to the hung sculpture. Participants will leave with detailed instructions for designing and creating a vertical succulent garden at home. All workshops with Winter Workspace artists begin in their Glyndor Gallery studios with an introduction to their creative process. Unless otherwise noted, art materials are provided. Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult.

$15/$5 Wave Hill Member per session. Registration recommended, starting November 12, online or at the Perkins Visitor Center.
