“Since new developments are the products of a creative mind, we must therefore stimulate and encourage that type of mind in every way possible.”  

George Washington Carver 

 Most know George Washington Carver for his contributions to agricultural science through the development of hundreds of peanut products. However, he was also a gifted artist whose biggest inspiration was nature. It was Carver’s creative lens that motivated him in all of his greatest scientific achievements.  The Creative Mind of George Washington Carver Artist’s Garden Show will provide visitors insight about Carver’s artistic and scientific development and the gifts he shared with the world. 

Carver understood that our emotional peace is interdependent on our surroundings, and he believed that everyone deserved to be surrounded by beauty. George Washington Carver teaches about the endless inspiration available in nature and the power of allowing that creativity to blossom. Visitors will find inspiration in the Artist’s Garden this summer by enjoying the beautiful floral landscape inspired by Carver’s paint washes & botanical illustrations.  Through interpretive panels, visitors will learn more about the Carver’s fascination with the botanical and how it infused his work. 

 

The Creative Mind of George Washington Carver Artist’s Garden Show opens July 3, 2024 in the Artist’s Garden. It can and can be enjoyed through September 22, 2024.
