Final week to see "Rebecca Louise Law: Community" at Toledo Museum of Art
Rebecca Louise Law: Community, the immersive, sensory exhibition featuring dried plant materials that explores the relationship between humanity and nature closes Sunday, Jan. 13. The exhibition is located in Canaday Gallery at the Toledo Museum of Art.
Admission to Rebecca Louise Law: Community is for $10 for adults, $7 for senior/military/students, and $5 for youth ages 5-17. Children under 4 are free. Admission for Museum members is free. In addition, the Museum will offer free admission this Thursday evening from 5 to 9 p.m.
Installation of Rebecca Louise Law: Community required 1,650 volunteer hours of assistance from community members to help assemble garlands of flowers collected from 10,000 plants grown locally at Brodbeck Greeenhouse. These floral strands were then entwined with Law’s entire collection of dried floral material, including more than 10 years of past installations combined with her own collection of European specimens. Community took 17 days to install.
“The installation offers visitors a sensory experience, evocative of the people and places, natural history and landscapes of northwest Ohio,” said Brian Kennedy, TMA’s Edward Drummond and Florence Scott Libbey director. “Law’s transporting vision wonderfully reflects the spirit and textures of our local and global communities.”
