“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”
Gardens are symbols of growth and care, we tend to our gardens to cultivate food, medicine, beauty, experience, and love. They are also symbols of power; a garden can beautify and nourish but it can also erase and replace. It exists simultaneously as an idea, a place and an action and by definition it implicates our presence, a relationship between human and earth. 

The work in this exhibition responds to the physical and historical space of the Tulsa Garden Center and might be viewed through the lens of the garden, a complex symbol which can be political, medicinal, memorial, ornamental, practical, or personal, but is always inextricably linked to the land. Through floral antique quilts layered with historical text, hand-crafted objects, site-responsive music, and collected, arranged, and prepared natural materials, the space is shaped and activated by each artist’s response.
