FLOCK Gallery

Guest Curator Nancy Gifford

In addition to the breathtaking gardens of Lotusland, visitors will experience FLOCK, the contemporary art exhibit inspired by an environmental imperative – the global loss of wild bird populations and their role as indicators of the health of our planet.
