Norfolk Botanical Garden hosts “The Great Frame Up”

Norfolk Botanical Garden invites everyone to come participate in “The Great Frame Up” running June 16 – September 6 throughout NBG’s landscape.

The exhibit features 20 frames placed throughout the garden where participants are welcome to take creative photos within the frames, be it group photos, selfies- NBG is encouraging photographers to snap their best beauty shots.

NBG is also coining the hashtag #NorfolkBlooms, so photos can be shared on social media websites. Tagged photos will be featured at the Chrysler Museum of Art as part of the exhibition, The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement, 1887 – 1920.

The Artist’s Garden will showcase more than 70 masterworks by various renowned painters.

Visit Chrysler Museum’s Waitzer Community Gallery where NBG will feature a large living sculpture wall, storyboards, large-scale photographs, artifacts, photos from The Great Frame Up, and a centerpiece canvas by Norfolk artist Maizelle.

“The work between the Chrysler Museum of Art and Norfolk Botanical Garden has been a labor of love for close to a year now,” said NBG President & CEO Michael Desplaines. “It is an incredible collaboration between two of Norfolk’s crown jewels. Exhibiting beautiful paintings and horticultural art together in one location is priceless, and The Great Frame Up will add a fun interactive element for all ages,” he said.
