The North Carolina Arboretum is not just about plants and Legos. The latest display in the Baker Exhibit Center is entitled Environmental Impact II and is on display through August 2, 2020. The exhibit consists of over 50 works that include paintings, photography, sculptures and film that focus on the interaction of humans with the environment.
One way traffic ensures a safe experience inside the Baker Exhibit Center and of course currently masks are required for inside spaces per our Governor’s mandate. When we visited we were the only ones in the exhibit so we could take our time and enjoy the pieces.
This next one is my favorite one and I think you can see why.
This exhibit was mesmerizing. 30 panels suspended from the ceiling depicting 30 different trees that had been charred in different forest fires. A notebook that was displayed gave more information about each panel which was a watercolor on paper that was transferred to the fabric panels. Fascinating.
Another really stunning wall featured three pieces of art that I really loved.
Fabulous display but don’t take my word for it. Pop over to The North Carolina Arboretum for a look for yourself. You won’t be disappointed. Which piece from this post is your favorite? Let me know in the comments and Comment for a Cause for Fill the Bus.

I don’t know if I can say ‘favorite’ as it all is quite ominous. But I like the raven image..and there’s something beautiful in a terrifying sort of way about the charred wood.
I agree about the charred wood. Even though it was probably a tragic situation that caused it there is beauty in it.
The basket and the corn is beautiful!! That is my favorite but they all are very amazing art. Thanks so much for sharing.
They really were spectacular exhibits.
