“Lewis and Art” Exhibition

Mon / April 18, 2022 Sun / October 9, 2022
10:00 am – 6:00 pm / Reiman Gardens, 1407 University Blvd.

After leaving a career as an electrical technician and machinist, Minnesota artist Dale Lewis embarked on a new journey re-imagining scrap as art. Reiman Gardens is the first botanical garden to serve as a temporary home for this whimsical mixture of metal plants, insects, and animals made from found objects. By repurposing salvage into fun and inspiring mixed media sculptures, this year’s exhibit offers a creative solution for discarded junk by turning it into treasure.

Please note that the summer hours listed above begin May 1 and end Sept. 30. The butterfly wing closes at 4:30 p.m.
