…things come to thrive…in the shedding…in the molting… Image Gallery

The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) presents a major site-specific exhibition of sculptural and horticultural installations by visual artist Ebony G. Patterson, titled …things come to thrive…in the shedding…in the molting…. The first visual artist ever to embed within the institution for an immersive residency, Patterson worked directly with NYBG’s gardens and collections to form a new body of work that brings her unique perspective on formal gardens to life within the 250-acre National Historic Landmark landscape. On view from May 27 through October 22, 2023, the exhibition reflects a deep engagement with the concept of gardens as human-made interventions in nature, shedding new light on the Botanical Garden while providing new pathways for engagement with the natural world.
