Botanic in Bloom
A nature conservatory is growing as night falls in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma.
FlowerHouse Tacoma, an installation by Duncan Price, is starting to take shape to transform the darkest days with an astonishing glow and heroic scale. With 28 photographic panels featuring invasive species – from brambles to thistles – Price will transform his home near downtown into a pictorial preserve of gorgeous flora.
Made possible through a grant from the Tacoma’s Artist Initiative Program (TAIP), we previewed the artistry in progress and insist it will captures adults' imagination with greater magnitude than the Christmas Ships and Zoo Lights combined.
Look forward to twilight and curse dawn through December 31st at the corner of South 15th and G streets. It's magical.
