UNC Native Bee Sculptures Installed

The final step in the Fall 2016 Maker In Residence project was the installation of the student sculptures in the Coker Arboretum and the Community Garden.

Coker Arboretum curator Margo MacIntyre worked with me to display sculptures in trees near the arbor entrance of the garden.

Ritam Chakraborty's "trompe l'eoil" tree branch

Nissa Coit's remembrance of Alice in Wonderland

Community Garden  staff and volunteers pause in their labors to pose with Zachary Gonzales' bright flower sculpture

We are blessed to have these excellent botanical gardens in our UNC community. Visit the Coker Arboretum and the Community Garden to see these creative student sculptures.
