Pandemic Gardens is the curation of mentorship pair Rachel A. MacGillivray and Ron Benner for Connexion Exchange, Connexion’s mentorship program. The duo gathered photos of artists’ gardens as they developed and flourished during the pandemic. In doing so, they were able to explore the role of the garden in the pandemic as a symbol of hope and growth amid a time of anxiety and stagnation. The cumulative display of this project will be a billboard with photos of the pandemic gardens included in the exhibition, coupled with a planter containing a mini garden at its base.
