The Desert Botanical Garden’s newest art exhibition from Milan is called Wild Rising by Cracking Art. More than 1,000 animal sculptures made from colorful and recyclable plastic will be on exhibit. Wild Rising is included in the cost of general admission and membership of the DBG. With 12 installations, visitors will see 20 penguins posing among the cactus and 40 majestic grey wolves guarding the Sybil B. Harrington Cactus and Succulent Galleries.
Per the DBG, “The vibrant art forms are the creations of Cracking Art, a collective of artists who specialize in plastic as an artistic medium with the intention of radically changing the history of art through a strong social and environmental commitment. The creatures featured in Wild Rising not only capture the magnificence of nature but also address global and local sustainability and conservation issues, including climate change, plastic in the oceans and the importance of recycling.”
Installations will be on display now through May 10th, 2020.
Location: Desert Botanical Garden – 1201 N. Galvin Parkway, Phoenix, AZ 85008
