季節 Kisetsu: The Year of the Island Garden 2020

To celebrate the opening of our newest themed garden, the Japanese-inspired “Island Garden”, a generous gift from Don and Jurate Krabill, Wellfield Botanic Gardens is dedicating 2020 to highlighting Japanese culture and its many artistic contributions to the world through a series of special events, drop-in activities, and class offerings. Wellfield also welcomes OrigamiintheGarden2 (OiG2), presented by the Community Foundation of Elkhart County. OiG2 is a traveling art installation featuring 21 unique sculpture pieces creating 17 unique displays around Wellfield’s 36 acres. It will be on display May-October.

“Kisetsu” translates to season or time of year. Each of our four seasonal shows (Spring Splendor, Sensational Summer, Fabulous Fall, and Winter Wonderland) speaks to the elements of seasonality and the Japanese concept of mono no aware, a sensitivity to the ephemeral or impermanence of all things.
