An Outdoor Land Art Exhibition
Beyond the Edge: Artists’ Gardens was first presented in 2014. The exhibition explored the notion of a rural oasis in the heart of an urban centre. In 2016, Canadensis Botanical Garden Society partnered with the Canada Council Art Bank to present outdoor works by a group of artists who created installations in response to three outdoor sculptures on loan from the Art Bank collection. This year, three new installations have been added to the site for a total of 6 unique experiences.
