This Surreal Cascade of Flowers Is an Art Exhibit Like No Other

Ohio Art + Architecture

This surreal installation at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio sets the bar unfairly high for other art exhibits.

Using 150,000 plants and flowers native to northwest Ohio, British installation artist Rebecca Louise Law created this incredible display of cascading flowers. It’s intended to be an immersive experience, so visitors can walk among the many beautiful flower garlands and consider the relationship between humans and nature.

The installation is called “Community,” which is truly reflective of the process required to complete the exhibit. It took 1,800 volunteer hours to gather the necessary materials, with volunteers also helping string together garlands of fresh, dried plants and flowers.

In an effort to create a sustainable installation, Rebecca Louise Law reused everything that she had ever used in artwork over the past 10 years, as well as new, fresh flowers.
