Holiday Exhibit – Small: A Big Look at Little

Matthaei Botanical Gardens
1800 N. Dixboro Rd
Ann Arbor, MI 48105 United States

November 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - January 5, 2020 @ 4:30 pm

Cost: Free

Our holiday exhibit features small things that make a big difference. From bonsai to terrariums to viewing stones, tiny plants and natural objects recreate the natural world in miniature and conjure new ways of looking at nature. We’ve created narrative terrariums with little scenes inside suggesting a complete world in miniature. Also on display are bonsai trees and viewing stones—naturally occurring rocks or stones that often look like objects or landscapes. The fairies return too, in all their tiny glory. The conservatory will also be decked out with seasonal flowers and evergreen concept trees related to the exhibit theme. Exhibit runs Nov. 30-Jan. 5. FREE. Open house/opening day: November 30, 10 am-4:30 pm. Discount for members in the Garden Store at Matthaei. 

Running at the same time as the exhibit is “Perspective: Small,” a display of art in a variety of media by community members. Click on the button below to view a gallery of artists’ work.
