The work, created by Tracy Ginsberg and Theodore Lillie of Forest Alchemy, will be a 80 foot labyrinth designed in the shape of a Magnolia flower which visitors can physically walk through and leave a written message inside. The installation will show us a new way to experience the park, the Parthenon and the Festival. The installation is hosted in partnership with Metro Parks as well as through a THRIVE grant given to the artists by the Metro Arts Commission of Nashville.

Hello! A quick and heartfelt word from us on this Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday holiday gift buying weekend. We are just a two-person studio and every single purchase is incredibly meaningful to us. Each & every single one. We’ve met many thousands of lovely people in person at shows and those encounters are warm and wonderful. (We love to nerd out about art!) But it’s not always as simple to have that same connection with an online transaction. We know, we get it. So we just wanted to take a moment to say how much it means to us that with every purchase, someone is living with our work in their homes, offices, or even school rooms.

As a big thanks, we love to do some Holiday Sales & Deals, so here you go friends! Feel free to use any of these coupon codes on our Bigcartel Shop here or in our Etsy Shop here.
