Previous Art Installations

  • Imagine/Align
Daffodils continued to make their yearly appearance in this art installation from 2004. Susan Skarsgard, a graduate student, imagined a half-mile long line of daffodils marching up and down the Arb's hillsides. Scores of volunteers planted 10,000 bulbs in the fall of 2003 to make this project a reality. Please visit http://www.imagine-align.org for more information or download a flyer and map to the exhibit.
