'The Womb' exhibition opens at Meijer Gardens

A new gallery exhibit at the Frederik Meijer Gardens immerses you in nature.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — "The Womb" is currently on display at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park's Balk Gallery. It's an immersive exhibition made up of over a million dried flowers designed to re-create the feeling of being in the womb.

Visitors will be able to walk among hanging flowers and through a womb-like sculpture while listening to the sound of a heart beat. 

British Installation Artist Rebecca Louise Law wants to encourage viewers to experience the relationship between humanity and nature. 

A big believer in sustainability, Law reuses the dried materials from her installations which allows her sculpture to change and grow with every installation.

In addition to the Meijer Garden's Balk Gallery, Law's The Womb has been displayed at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, Nivaagaards Collection, Chandran Gallery, NOW Gallery, bo-lee gallery and Toledo Museum of Art.

Admission to see the installation is free for members but tickets are required for non-members.

The Womb will be on display through March 1, 2020.
