Let your imagination run wild at the Fort Worth Botanical Garden.

Every artist has their medium: For Frida Kahlo it was paint, for Yo-Yo Ma the cello, and for Sean Kennedy it’s LEGOs. While some of us might find difficulty putting together a simple 2,000-piece NASA Saturn V replica, the award-winning artist has long thought outside the box (and accompanying instruction packets) building brilliant sculptures ranging from massive architectural replicas, photo-quality portraits, and life-sized models of cars, animals, and people.
Now, visitors can see his ingenious artwork at the Fort Worth Botanical Garden, which is currently exhibiting Nature Connects:
“Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature Connects depicts important topics that the New York artist Sean Kenney holds dear, from protecting an animal’s habitat, to planting a garden, or showcasing a beautiful orchid – subject matter with particular appeal to gardens,” reads a press release.
“Through captivating art with an educational message, Nature Connects creates yet another way for visitors to experience the Botanic Garden,” said Bob Byers, FWBG|BRIT Assistant Director. “The summer timing is perfect for children out of school and families on vacation looking for new ways to enjoy the outdoors.”
The exhibition is on display at the botanical garden daily from 8 am to 6 pm. Access to the exhibition is included with general admission costs. You can get your tickets here.
