Each new show at the Cleveland Botanical Garden involves logistical planning, creative brainstorming, and hard work. Here is a look at our team at work as they discuss this year’s show. Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes looks at the show installation.

Ryan Sandy, Manager of Exhibitions; Sommer Tolan, Horticultural Artist and Andy Pratt, Director of the Gardens and Glasshouse discuss this year’s orchids show (you are in for a treat, Greater Cleveland).

Sommer’s sketches are beautiful and begin to bring the team’s vision to life.
