Scary Plants

October 3–November 15, 2015
Imaginative horticulture displays transform the Dorothy M. Davis Showhouse. An abandoned greenhouse,  an old cemetery, curious carnivorous plants, and more await in this botanical take on Halloween season. View a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the Lady of the Ferns topiary featured in the exhibition.
Villafane Studios
One-of-a-kind pumpkin carvings of humorous, weird and wild characters, created by artists from the internationally exhibited Villafane Studios, are on display in the Cardinal Health Gallery. Ray Villafane, an Arizona-based artist, specializes in highly intricate, 3-D style pumpkin sculptures. Villafane is a regular competitor on the Food Network and was a recent finalist on Halloween Wars. Villafane Studios' creations will be placed in brine-filled tanks to preserve them for display.
