The Franklin Park Conservatory Showcases ‘Resilience in Nature’

Paisa Thomas' ceramic piece, "Ala: She who Beings and Ends the Seasons," on display in Franklin Park Conservatory's new exhibition.

Photographer Lynn Prillerman was walking by Franklin Park 1 day when she learned a cluster of mushrooms nestled in the grass. The diverse styles, sizes and colours spoke to her of unity, loved ones and growth—of resilience in tough instances. She snapped a photo. 

Her photograph, “The Attractiveness of Fungi,” is now among 31 will work of art showcased in a new exhibition at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Resilience in Nature: We are the Roses that Grew from the Concrete, which works by using nature as a metaphor to spotlight diversity and bolster the get the job done of regional Black artists. 

“This is a time that we have to be resilient as a people today,” Prillerman says. “I’ve always believed that my artwork must have a concept. It should elevate individuals up and make them really feel much better.”
