Each year, Reiman Gardens' staff use a new theme to inspire its horticultural displays, educational programs, events, and even in products in the Gift Shop. The theme emphasizes a new dimension of the garden so guests can visit again and again to see and learn something new in the everchanging and exhilarating displays.
2023 Theme: Light and Reflection
The result of a reflection is never a carbon copy, but something that is transformed in the process, like an image in a body of water or the exchange of information. Color and light, along with actions, thoughts, and behaviors are all altered by the act of bending or looking back. In 2023, explore garden displays, education programs, events, and exhibits revealing the power of light and reflection in nature. Examine how plants can help us find solutions to a changing climate while you see yourself in herbs, delight in floral kaleidoscopes and an edible rainbow, look through rose (and other) colored glass, and help us celebrate the movement of light through the seasons.
Each year, our outdoor garden spaces, Hughes Conservatory, and Garden Room each feature sculptures and artwork which reflects the annual theme. Over the years, Reiman Gardens has also collected many works of art that are integrated throughout the grounds. Find descriptions of each piece of art and its location here.
