Event supporters were among the first to see the Selby Marc Chagall exhibit at a preview party on Feb. 8.
Walking through the new Marc Chagall, Flowers, and the French Riviera: The Color of Dreams exhibit at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is like walking into a different world.
Time seems to move at a slower pace in Chagall’s universe — it’s a peaceful trip through what feels like a cathedral built around an enchanting garden. Floral waterfalls cascade out of flower pots, blossoms peak out of reflection ponds and hanging botanical life serve as natural frames for the breathtaking stained glass artwork on display.
Orchid Ball sponsors were among the first Selby guests to experience the exhibit on Feb. 8 before following the path to Michael’s on the Bay at Selby Gardens for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, along with a spectacular view of Sarasota Bay during sunset.
Guests at Orchid Ball on Saturday, Feb. 11 will be the next to experience the unique exhibit.
Marc Chagall, Flowers, and the French Riviera: The Color of Dreams officially opens to the public on Feb. 12.
