While some gardens feature art, this garden is its own work of art. “Art of the Garden” blurs the line between landscape and fine art, interpreting natural features – forest, mountain, and lake – in a human-made aesthetic experience. The exhibit is designed to evoke surprise, intrigue, and moments of reflection in the visitor. Constructed using natural materials and innovative fabrication, the exhibit mimics, but does not copy, nature. A reflecting pond, a grove of trees, and colorful, textured plantings are complemented by contemporary art works including mural paintings, a multi-media artifact wall, and the sculptural representation of a mountain. Experience this collaborative art and garden installation created by local artist Daniel Dienelt and landscape designer Chad Shaw. Sponsored by WAJI Majic 95.1, Fort Wayne CW, the M.E.
