HERE, THERE, AND EVERYWHERE
AN OUTDOOR EXHIBITION BY ARTISTS OF KEW GARDENS

On view on the Queens Botanical Garden perimeter fence along Blossom Avenue
December 10, 2021 – May 15, 2022

This exhibition was born of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic stress and political division it engendered. With shops, restaurants, theatres and museums shuttered, occupations lost or on hold, neighbors separated and families unable to gather, normal life seemed to have come to a halt. How do you cultivate hope and strength and remain positive and affirming when everything around you seems to point in the opposite direction?

This is when artists step in. They remind us of the beauty of the world, its strangeness and its transience, and employ the power of imagination and experience to shape sensibility and attempt to provide respite and hope. It is our hope that as you pass by you will stop to enjoy, reflect and, perhaps, be inspired to create by the work of these artists who, like all of us, found their world turned upside down.
