Sacrifice + Bliss exhibit at Franklin Park Conservatory

Today, I toured the Franklin Park Conservatory and its current exhibition, “Sacrifice + Bliss.”

An environmental activist and advocate for plastic pollution awareness, artist Aurora Robson uses cast-off plastic, excess packaging and junk mail to create transformative works of art with a message.

Her large-scale sculptures and installations are displayed throughout the Conservatory’s plant collections, while Robson’s paintings, collages and smaller works are on view in the Cardinal Health Gallery.

Our tour guide was quite good about connecting the importance of environmentally sustainable choices through the interactive educational components and community projects associated with the exhibit.
