Cornell Botanic Gardens has unveiled a new outdoor art installation: a two-story mural, created in September 2019 by Brazilian street artist Eder Muniz.
“A Dança Da Natureza” (The Dance of Nature) incorporates nature, a human figure, animals and stylistic images in bright, vivid colors that enliven the north side of the Nevin Welcome Center. Watch the soaring mural come to life in this video, from bare wall to finish. The artist talks about his inspiration and harnessing the magic of the gardens surrounding the mural, while mentoring students in two Cornell classes.
Learn more about the artist and installation, including a recording of his lecture, part of Cornell Botanic Gardens’ annual lecture series.
