NEW BLOOM: Industrial Nature by Michelle Stitzlein

DATES: April 18, 2019
TIMES: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
PRICE: Free with general admission.


Desert Botanical Garden presents sculpture created with found materials from the imagination of artist Michelle Stitzlein. The impressive, large-scale works promote recycling through transforming simple objects into dynamic, natural forms.

Stitzlein lives and works in Ohio, where she maintains a studio in a former National Grange Hall. Through her many efforts to promote sustainability, Stitzlein teaches art workshops at elementary schools, art camps and festivals. She has assisted children all over the US to make colorful murals and whimsical outdoor sculptures by beautifying thousands of bottle caps that would otherwise end up in a landfill. A graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design, her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide, including Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, Ohio, Miller Gallery – Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, and the Franklin Park Conservatory, Columbus, Ohio.
