Exhibition Guide

Now Extended Through October 22, 2023

10 a.m.–6 p.m. | At the Garden

Explore the components of Patterson’s deceptively beautiful installations across the grounds and galleries, composed of major landscape interventions, large-scale installations indoors and outdoors, and an exhibition of the artist’s new and recent work across media.

About the Exhibition

On the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory lawn, hundreds of glittering vultures descend like shadows to gather among wound-like ruptures in the landscape. The artist embraces the lush, colorful, and enticing elements of gardens—floral displays rich with color and fragrance that embrace the life cycle of plants through the seasons—while offering bold and provocative disruptions.
