Coconut Telegraph


In February 2016, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens will launch the first of the  Jean & Alfred Goldstein Exhibition Series of interdisciplinary arts and horticultural exhibitions. Marc Chagall’s Cote d’Azur: The Artist’s Botanical Imagery and Inspiration Found on the French Riviera will be a six-month long exhibition that will incorporate key works created by Chagall that feature botanical imagery inspired by the south of France. At the centerpiece of the exhibit will be “The Lovers,” an oil painting Chagall created in 1937 that will be on loan from the collection of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, a world-leading art and archaeology museum. During the Chagall exhibit, the Tropical Conservatory will feature a changing exhibit of orchids, bromeliads, bougainvillea and citrus trees, the flora of St. Paul de Vence, the picturesque village where Chagall spent the latter part of his life and quotes that illustrate Chagall’s deep reverence for nature will be placed throughout the gardens. The Chagall exhibition will also include complementary education programs and tours, French-themed performances and French Riviera-themed food and drink and cooking demonstrations led by Michael’s On East.
