So You Want to Do an Art Exhibition? The Nuts and Bolts to Create Art Exhibits at Your Garden
Events are becoming increasingly important fundraisers and friendraisers for gardens of all sizes. This session will cover the nuts and bolts of creating a new event from the perspectives of three very different gardens—a large garden with a history of blockbuster exhibits and events, a small but well-established University arboretum with free admission, and an emerging municipal botanical garden. The gardens will focus on building on past successes to ensure a big hit, leveraging resources and relationships to build awareness, and creating a mission-centric exhibit to drive new audiences.
