BETA VULGARIS: THE SUGAR BEET PROJECTS

BetaVulgarisPoster_web

Please join us to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit BETA VULGARIS: THE SUGAR BEET PROJECTS by Kelty McKinnon and Keri Latimer.

Nikkei National Museum’s gallery will be transformed into a Japanese dry garden, punctuated by large sculptural ‘boulders’ made of molten, burnt, and sculpted sugar. A wooden boardwalk will traverse overtop of this landscape conflating the “hills of Mission” to the flat, striated furrows of the sugarbeet fields in southern Alberta.
