yellow-frogcloseupprofile-abgI’m a member of the Atlanta Botanical Garden, but were I not, I’d take advantage of one of these deals for discount tickets to see the new exhibitions, Imaginary Worlds: A New Kingdom of Plant Giants & Philip Haas: The Four Seasons:

Per the summary: “Imaginary Worlds: A New Kingdom of Plant Giants, presented May through October, features monumental works of mosaiculture–the centuries-old horticultural art of planting steel forms with thousands of living plants–created by International Mosaiculture of Montreal. Presented for the first time in the United States last summer at the Garden, the blockbuster exhibition Imaginary Worlds: Plants Larger Than Life showcased 19 sculptures, including a pair of towering cobras and a giant bust called Earth Goddess, which now calls the Garden home. In the new exhibition, joining those sculptures, which have been ‘re-imagined’ with new plantings and installed in different garden areas, are four frolicking frogs, three gallivanting gorillas and a pair of ogling orangutans as the newest denizens of the enchanted gardens.”

With The Four Seasons, “monumental sculptures by artist Philip Haas visit the Garden this summer as reigning monarchs of the Great Lawn. Enjoy studying the intricate details of these compositions while marveling at the creative and surprising juxtaposition of recognizable plants employed in unexpected relationships. Each gigantic bust, towering at more than 15 feet, is a whimsical embodiment of spring, summer, autumn and winter. The three-dimensional sculptures, made of painted fiberglass, feature oversized twigs, fruits, vegetables, leaves, and other natural elements indicative of their respective months of origin.”

Both exhibitions will be on view through October 2014. Want to see them on the cheap? Admission to Imaginary Worlds: A New Kingdom of Plant Giants & Philip Haas: The Four Seasons is free for members & included with Garden admission, but nonmembers can still save a bit.

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is located at 1345 Piedmont Ave. NE in Midtown.
