Time Out says

Six Queens-based female artists of colorr were selected to create site-specific art installations throughout the grounds of Queens Botanical Garden last year, and now, they're back with new work that were informed by the public art pieces from last year that existed on the grounds of the garden. Works included a brightly-colored mixed media rose garden, a work made of color transparencies that project shadows on the ground, a large cyanotype paper flower surrounded by smaller cyanotype ferns, and tags with information honoring the many women that have met violent endings at the hands of a loved one, sculptural rocks made of abstract paintings on Mylar and a large painting along the skylight railing, a fanciful "Rabbit's Storytelling Throne," made largely from recycled and salvaged materials, paying homage to QBG’s landfill history, and a portrait of feminist and advocate, Marielle Franco, who was murdered in 2018 while returning from a speech. 


$6 includes entry to the garden
