ABOUT Gardens of Hope
Gardens of Hope is the first solo museum exhibition of the work of Mobile-native Wanda Sullivan. In this exhibition, Sullivan examines the intersection between the natural world, her gardens, and the effects of climate change. Sullivan says about the flowers and nature featured in her work, “My flowers are beautiful, but they are monsters—contemporary, biomorphic Frankensteins. They are designed to seduce the viewer and lure them in, just like our dependency on fossil fuels, phones, tablets, and computers do.”
