With three versions of the exhibition featuring up to 49 sculptures in 37 displays, Wild Connections allows your guests to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspire your guests to go home and create something wonderful themselves.
Just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. Insects and plants have important relationships; different species of animals have special relationships with each other; animals have connections with their families just like we do.
And of course, people have a connection with nature, whether you’re trimming a bonsai tree or planting a garden, or anything else: you are a part of nature.
Each Wild Connections display illustrates a connection in nature and connects youth and adults to nature and art:
- The importance of nature
- Balance of ecosystems
- Predator/prey relationships
- Adult/offspring relationships
- Symbiotic and mutualistic relationships
- Species interaction
- Relationships with habitat, host plants, nesting, etc
- Relationships between humankind and nature
Wild Connections is both artistic and educational, aiming to simultaneously draw attention to nature and the world around us in a way that is very true to artist Sean Kenney and to the essence of the subject matter itself.
