The Fantastical Garden
Hagerstown Cultural Trail,
The Fantastical Garden is one of five artworks commissioned by the city of Hagerstown for the Hagerstown Cultural Trail. The Cultural Trail connects two of the city’s most popular destinations — the downtown Arts & Entertainment District with City Park and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.
The Fantastical Garden is a collection of painted aluminum plants that are truly fantastical! The Garden contains 20 exotic plants and several small woodland creatures. The installation enhances the park-like feel of this part of the trail while visually connecting the (very large) Mural of Unusual Size to the trail.
Photos below show the project during the making and installation phase.
