Over Thanksgiving Karen and I trekked to North Carolina, and during our short stay, we found time to swing by the North Carolina Museum of Art museum to see how the grass plantings had matured since the installation.
The vegetation in the park is an artistic rendering of the North Carolina countryside, and it continued the theme of a piedmont prairie that is used throughout the park from surrounding artwork to use in green infrastructure. The website says that 150,000 plants were used in the gardens.
The grouping of plants was an excellent example of blocking with a heavy focus on grasses. As a grass groupie, I loved it. It was very peaceful and tranquil. In some sections with the elevated mounds and tall grasses I felt separated from the outside world. I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking.
