I’m a member of the Atlanta Botanical Garden, but were I not, I’d take advantage of a deal to go, as there’s plenty to see & do.
On view through October 29, 2017, The Curious Garden exhibition features 11 site-specific installations by artist Adam Schwerner. Per the summary: “Bold, often unexpected, man-made and altered natural materials are employed to direct the eye to focus on the simple beauty of nature. In some cases, art objects are suspended, piquing the curiosity even more when forced to look up at the magnificence of tree canopies and brillant skies.”
To see The Curious Garden in a different light, head out for Cocktails in the Garden, happening on Thursday evenings through September 28, 2017. Admission to Cocktails in the Garden is free for members & included with Garden admission, but nonmembers can still save a bit: While they last, $29 buys two general admission tickets to Cocktails in the Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, thanks to a deal on Groupon.
While you’re there, be sure to check out the newly renovated Lou Glenn Children’s Garden. Little ones can “paint” on the water wall, explore the tree house, build something new in the balsa wood construction area, dance to the beat of their own drum while playing the outdoor instruments, cool off on the splash pad, & more.
Tickets to the Atlanta Botanical Garden are regularly $21.95 for adults, $15.95 for children ages 3-12, and free for kids under age 3.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden is located at 1345 Piedmont Ave. NE in Midtown.
