The Making of “Changing Tides” – Illustrated Lecture by Sayaka Ganz
(March 4, 2015) – On Thursday, March 12, 6 – 7 pm, the Botanical Conservatory presents an illustrated lecture by internationally-known local artist Sayaka Ganz. Ganz will describe the process she used to develop and create the fascinating ocean-themed pieces on display at the Botanical Conservatory now through April 5. The evocative blue dolphins, luminous jellyfish, and impressive coral reef were once just colorful piles of cast-off plastic clothes hangers, children’s toys, kitchen utensils, and industrial scraps. Ganz offers insight into her imaginative journey from theme to model to material to form.
No registration required; first come, first seated. The special $1 admission price includes a visit to the “Changing Tides” exhibit and Conservatory gardens on March 12, 5 – 8 pm.
The “Changing Tides” exhibit is sponsored by the Auer Foundation, Magee-O’Connor Foundation, Arts United, Artlink, City of Fort Wayne Solid Waste, Allen County Solid Waste, IPFW, the University of St. Francis School of Creative Arts, WAJI 95.1 Best FM and WLDE Fun 101.7, the Wilson Foundation and Cancer Services of Allen County.
