February 12 2017-July 31 2017

Beginning in February 2017, an exhibition of Marc Chagall’s nature-inspired artwork will be on view in the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Sarasota’s world-renowned botanical garden in an immersive exhibition. As the first botanical garden to exhibit Chagall’s work, The Color of Dreams also marks the first time nature’s profound influence on the artist is examined in-depth. The six-month exhibit features the masterwork painting The Lovers (1937),  on loan from the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, along with two additional paintings, loaned from a private collector, that have not been publicly exhibited before. Additionally, ceramic vases once owned by Chagall, archival photos, a glass house cathedral of plants and reproductions of a selection of Chagall’s stained glass works, and outdoor garden scenes reminiscent of the French Riviera where Chagall spent the later part of his life are exhibited. School tours will be part of the exhibition, which encourages visitors to use all five senses, immersing themselves in the dream world created by Chagall in his artwork.

School tours begin daily between 9-10am.
