The Leiber Collection – ‘Winter Garden ~ A Collaboration’
The Leiber Collection is thrilled to announce its upcoming exhibition in the Leiber Sculpture Garden, ‘Winter Garden – A Collaboration’, with artists Monica Banks, Philippe Cheng, Laurie Lambrecht, Jill Musnicki, Mamoun Nukumanu, and Bastienne Schmidt.
Exploring a garden in the winter a magical experience of space and light, like a meditative journey of sorts. Spending time in Nature offers a chance to slow down, to be still and quiet, to reflect and think, to be restored. There are beautiful things to hear and see, fresh air to breathe, dancing leaves to notice on the breeze. The bare branches above become a gestural drawing in the sky. There is a unique hush, a palpable quiet to calm the heart and mind.
The artists in this exhibition created site specific works that honor nature as a collaborative partner, working with and in the trees and their branches, with the newfound space, the magical light, the ever-changing wind, the intrepid birds and the deep quiet found in the winter garden.
Don’t let the cold keep you indoors! Come enjoy the Winter Garden with these extraordinary artists. (Open through Monday, March 20)
Also on view in the museum galleries, ‘Judith and Gerson Leiber ~ A Life of beauty, Love and Inspiration’ showcasing over 500 of Judith Leiber’s dazzling designs and extraordinary paintings by Gerson Leiber. This exhibition celebrates the artistic legacy of Judith and Gerson Leiber through the beauty of their works, their enduring love of one another, and the inspiration all around them.
